What to expect
Musicians of any musical genre will find a place in our innovative training environment. Classical, Contemporary (includes folk, jazz and rock), and cutting-edge musicians work side-by-side in the vibrant musical atmosphere of our campus at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. The Diploma in Music Performance will increase your personal strengths in music making through a balance of performance and hands-on application of practical skills. Intensive one-on-one studio instruction, group performance, music theory and contexts, music technologies, and career skills will give you the foundations for success in the 21st-century music profession.
A common first year for musicians of all genres will lay the ground work for future specialized study. Performance, music theory and contexts, aural skills, and music technologies are taught.
In the second year, you will choose areas of musical specialization. Areas of performance, contexts and creativity, composition, improvisation, performance practice, and stagecraft are emphasized.
