Learning Opportunity: Postgraduate Diploma in Music Performance

Postgraduate Diploma in Music Performance

Course Information

The programme Postgraduate Diploma (PDM) in Music Performance is designed for students who has reached a high level in their music performance and want a year for further in-depth studies in their instrument/project. The programme encompasses extensive study in instrumental or vocal performance.

The year is meant for students wanting to dedicate a year to concentrate on a limited portion of the repertoire (e.g. Norwegian music), technical studies, auditioning practice and repertoire, competition preparations or simply to study with a particular teacher after graduating from a university or academy in Norway or abroad.

A high level of performance is required for admittance. Normally, PDM will form a year of specialization and in-depth study with your main instrument after completion of a master.
