The Barenboim-Said Akademie offers a four-year, accredited Bachelor of Music degree in all orchestral instruments, piano, conducting, and composition. The Bachelor of Music program is intended for musicians who are looking for an undergraduate education that bridges intensive music performance studies with a strong grounding in the humanities.
Applicants to the Akademie’s Bachelor of Music program should hold a diploma (or its equivalent) from a secondary school at the time of enrollment. Candidates who have completed a degree in music at either the undergraduate or graduate level at the time of application should consider applying to the Akademie’s one- to two-year Artist Diploma program.
Auditions for the Bachelor of Music program 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.
