Graduate Diploma in Jazz Studies

The Graduate Diploma in Jazz Studies is a two-year advanced program of study in jazz and contemporary music performance. Admission to the program is limited to students who have earned a bachelor’s degree, a college-level conservatory diploma, or the foreign equivalent of either, and who possess graduate-level music performance skills and knowledge.

What makes us different: individualized programs of study
The curriculum is flexible in order to satisfy the goals of the individual student and focuses on developing advanced musical aptitude through applied private lessons, ensembles and elective courses. Specific and individualized programs of study are developed in consultation with the School of Music's chair of graduate Jazz Studies.
