Course content

The Master of Music (Orchestral Performance) is the first and only course of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region offering elite-level training for aspiring orchestral musicians.

At the core of this intensive two-year program is Orchestral Experience, a series of intensive learning experiences in which students will engage with the full spectrum of repertoire and performance contexts of the modern symphony orchestra, and be paired with a private instructor for direct one-to-one teaching. This is offered alongside a Performance Practicum, which enables students to gain professional orchestral performance experience through work-integrated learning experiences. Supporting Studies in musicians’ health, audition preparation, outreach and entrepreneurship, orchestra administration, and optimal performance complement the practical components to create a unique, holistic kind of orchestral training, preparing a new generation of highly trained musicians with the experience, skills, knowledge, and insight to transition into sustainable orchestral careers.
