Degree Programs:  MFA
View Program Faculty Listing

This graduate program offers a thoroughgoing exploration of the rich Hindustani classical music tradition. Students must be serious practitioners and prepared for high-level performance studies in either tabla or an instrumental or vocal medium of this tradition, such as sarod, sitar, voice, flute or other appropriate instrument.

The curriculum enables students to learn advanced aural, rhythmic and improvisational skills, and includes studies of North Indian raga and tala history and theory, transcription and sargam. Students are required to demonstrate their performing skills in recitals and, depending on the specific nature of an individual student's work, complete a supplemental thesis.
