|Description:||The Performance Diploma Program (PDP) is a four-year postsecondary program structured to help students master their instruments while at the same time acquiring the theory, ear training, history, and performance skills required to develop compelling interpretations. Participants receive extensive performance opportunities as soloists, chamber musicians, and orchestra members. The PDP requires that students have completed a high school diploma or equivalent, and the program is offered in piano, orchestral instruments, and voice.
Graduates of the PDP have pursued graduate studies at institutions such as Yale University, The Juilliard School, Colburn School Conservatory of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, Peabody Institute, USC Thornton School of Music, Royal Academy of Music, McGill University, Indiana University School of Music, New England Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, University of Michigan, and San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
