Diploma Information

 

 

Students who complete an ECMS diploma have immersed themselves in a conservatory-like experience. They are required to take a balance of academic study in theory, history and composition, applied instrumental or vocal study, ensemble and chamber music work, and piano proficiency for non-keyboard players or keyboard theory for keyboard players.  The Community Music School offers an array of eight pre-college diplomas:

  • The ECMS Diploma is designed to be completed in approximately two years and is offered in two possible majors: Classical instrument or voice and jazz instrument
  • The ECMS Advanced Diploma is designed to be completed in approximately four years and is offered in three possible majors: Classical instrument or voice, jazz instrument or music theory
  • The ECMS Pre-College Diploma is designed to be completed in approximately six years and is offered in three possible majors: Classical instrument or voice, jazz instrument or music theory

Approximately 250 students are working towards the completion of one of these diplomas at any given time. Official University of Rochester transcripts are maintained for all students and are forwarded at no charge to colleges or universities of the student’s choice. These transcripts show all courses, ensembles and applied study done at the Eastman Community Music School including grades earned.
