Master of Music

The Master of Music (M.M. or M.Mus.) is the first graduate degree in Music awarded by universities and music conservatories. The M.Mus. combines advanced studies in an applied area of specialization (usually music performance, composition, or conducting) with graduate-level academic study in subjects such as music history, music theory, or music pedagogy. The degree, which takes one or two years of full-time study to complete, prepares students to be professional performers, conductors, and composers. The M.Mus. is often required as the minimum teaching credential for university, college, and conservatory instrumental or vocal teaching positions.

Famous quotes containing the words master of, music and/or master:

    Alcohol doesn’t console, it doesn’t fill up anyone’s psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn’t comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny.
    Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)

    The manner in which Americans “consume” music has a lot to do with leaving it on their coffee tables, or using it as wallpaper for their lifestyles, like the score of a movie—it’s consumed that way without any regard for how and why it’s made.
    Frank Zappa (1940–1994)

    Though it seems improbable on the face of it
    You must master the huge retards and have faith in the slow
    Blossoming of haystacks, stairways, walls of convolvulus,
    Until the moon can do no more. Exhausted,
    You get out of bed. Your project is completed
    Though the experiment is a mess.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
