The Graduate Diploma in Music is a one-year program designed for university graduates in any field who wish to undertake graduate study in music.
In the Graduate Diploma in Music (Practical Music) you engage in practical music training to develop your instrumental, vocal or conducting technique to a level equivalent of a fourth year of study, and establish a sophisticated awareness of the stylistic and interpretive characteristics of the repertory studies. You also take a number of ensemble electives to expand your practical experience and can select from one of the largest ensemble programs in the country, with options ranging from large to small, western to non-Western, and early to new music ensembles. Subjects in Music Language, Aural Studies and historical, cultural and contextual studies complement your learning and add depth and breadth to your musical studies.
Upon completion of the Graduate Diploma in Music you may be eligible to apply for masters by coursework or research in Music.
