Graduate Studies in Music

The Crane School of Music offers two graduate programs leading to the Master of Music (MM) degree in music education and music performance. These programs are designed to meet student interests, needs and requirements within a framework that provides opportunities to pursue a balance of academic and professionally oriented courses.

Full-time students can earn a master's degree in music performance in three or four semesters of study.

Music education graduate students may complete their program in two semesters of study (fall/spring) or in as few as three summer semesters. Students entering this program need to have a Bachelor of Music degree in music education or another Bachelor of Music degree with teacher certification.

A Master of Music double-major in both music performance and music education is also possible for qualified students.

In addition, students in either degree who are piano or keyboard specialists can also apply to add the Concentration in Piano Pedagogy.
