Two Year Program (Applied emphasis in Piano, Violin, Viola or Cello)
The graduate certificate program in music performance is designed for students who want to pursue a non-degree course of study concentrating almost exclusively on performance.
Minimum graduate credits required for the certificate are 24. In additional to the general rules that are applicable for admission to the Graduate School at Park University, specific admission requirements are:
- Bachelor of Music or related undergraduate degree from a U. S. Institution, an equivalent bachelor's degree from an accredited foreign institution of higher education, or equivalent professional experience.
- An audition before the music faculty. In approved situations, a recording may be submitted in lieu of a live audition.
Each applicant must furnish a complete list of repertoire and recital history at the time of application. This is an advanced program of study at the graduate level, supervised and approved by the graduate faculty of Park University.
