Graduate Programs in Music

 


Why Belmont?

Belmont's Master of Music program offers its students the best of both worlds - a small community of elite musicians pursuing professional graduate degrees housed within a large, vibrant and diverse School of Music. 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.

Belmont offers abundant performance and teaching opportunities to its graduate students. Of course, if you study at Belmont, you will be living in Nashville, Tennessee - a city with unparalleled opportunities for musicians of all kinds.

Many resources are available on Belmont's campus: a comprehensive music library with full-time staff; the Massey Performing Arts Center, which contains the 1,000-seat Massey Concert Hall and the 100-seat Harton Recital Hall; the Wilson Music Building, with state-of-the-art music technology labs; a vocal arts lab, numerous classrooms, studios and practice rooms; the Belmont Mansion Grand Salon, which provides a historic setting for chamber music; and a recently opened 876-seat venue for acoustic performances, McAfee Concert Hall. Read more about our School of Music Facilities.
