Master of Music
You will be inspired to chart your own musical journey. We want you to fully express your creative self. Float into the scary “what-if” and discover your voice.
Students who have completed an undergraduate degree and are looking to take the next step in their professional and artistic development are ideal candidates for the MM program at SOU. Exceptional performance abilities and a drive to succeed are a must.
The Master of Music Degree at SOU is performance-heavy preparation for the “real world” of music. Students will complete a minimum of 48 credits that will involve special topics in history, literature, pedagogy, and music theory. Along with this, students will participate in the ensemble(s) of their choice and complete two full recitals comprised of both chamber music and solo work.
Upon conclusion of the Master in Music Program, students are required to perform in two recitals – and also successfully complete graduate composition exams in theory, history, and the student’s principal instrument/voice.
