Program Description:

Belmont's School of Music offers its students the best of both worlds - a large high-powered music program, offering a variety of professional graduate degrees, in a small, liberal arts setting. Located at the end of historic Music Row near the heart of Nashville, Belmont's quiet, neighborhood campus provides a peaceful, inspiring environment for musicians to practice and learn.

Our nationally recognized faculty is here to offer personal support and guidance to each student in the program - this means that your seminars and classes are kept small to allow professors to work with you one on one. In addition, our mentoring committees work to nurture each musician in the program and guide them towards challenging and rewarding programs of study.

With dozens of showcases and performances every semester, Belmont offers abundant performance opportunities to its students. 

Each of the strong musical and academic graduate curricula Belmont offers consists of 34 total hours. The Master of Music is designed to be completed in two (2) years; students have up to six (6) years to complete the degree.
