Faculty of distinguished performers
The Osher School of Music offers a personalized and opportunity-based approach to educating musicians, featuring a faculty of distinguished performers (nationally and internationally), teachers, scholars, and mentors with experience in all styles of music.
Upon graduation you’ll join an alumni network of successful conductors, performers, composers, and music educators who hold positions in music leadership across the U.S. and internationally.
Graduate student support
Our Office of Graduate Studies connects you with opportunities for professional development, scholarships, and graduate assistantships. They also foster our graduate student community through Peer Mentorship and the Graduate Student Board.
Our conducting graduate program is for students who wish to pursue a career conducting music in one of three areas: choral, orchestral, or wind. Curriculum focuses on bibliography and research in music, music theory, music history, applied music, and culminates in a final recital.
