The Master of Music degree (M.M.) at the Frost School of Music is available in the areas of Keyboard Performance, and Keyboard Performance and Pedagogy

Individual instruction, ensemble experience, master classes, teaching opportunities, as well as performance opportunities both on and off-campus enhance private study with internationally renowned artist-teachers. Supporting academic instruction, now with additional courses available focusing on artist development, enriches the performance experience, which culminates with a final recital.

The competitive reality of the market for performers and teachers has never been more demanding. We are proud that many of our students have gone on to DMA studies, win awards at piano competitions, have been invited to publish in recognized periodicals, and are currently in teaching positions both in the U.S. and abroad.

Our current and past FSOM piano students have participated and won prizes at competitions such as:

  • Tchaikovsky Competition
  • Queen Elizabeth Competition
  • Van Cliburn Competition
  • Sydney International Piano Competition
  • Paderewski Piano Competition

Our mission at the Frost School of Music is to have you join them!
