The Barenboim-Said Akademie offers an Artist Diploma in all orchestral instruments, piano, conducting, and composition. The Akademie’s Artist Diploma is designed as a one-year curriculum that can be extended by one additional year. As a non-degree program, the Artist Diploma is intended for musicians at the post-graduate level, preparing to embark on a performing career.
The Artist Diploma program combines rigorous music performance studies with an array of electives in the humanities, and is intended for musicians who have completed a competitive conservatory degree at either the undergraduate or graduate level at the time of application.
Auditions for the Artist Diploma are by invitation only. To be considered for an audition, applicants must first submit a completed application which includes video recordings of the required pre-screening repertoire.
