The program of study leading to the Performer’s Certificate in Music is intended to provide a concentrated course of study in performance for outstanding musicians who have completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from a university or music conservatory in the United States or an international equivalent. Under the guidance of artist-teachers, students study applied music, participate in chamber music, repertory/coaching (voice), and perform in a major ensemble.
The Performer’s Certificate is intended to be completed in one academic year (in consecutive fall and spring semesters). Nine credits are required in the Fall semester and three in the Spring, for a total of twelve credits. Credits earned in a certificate program may not be applied later to any degree program at the University of Connecticut. Specific information on the types of Performer’s Certificates, listed below, is available in the Handbook for Graduate Music Students.
The UConn Music Department offers graduate-level performer's certificates in the following areas:
Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, & Percussion
