Collaborative Piano Studies at Boston University

The School of Music within the Boston University College of Fine Arts offers a Master of Music degree in Collaborative Piano as part of the school's MusM with a Major in Performance program, as well as a Doctor of Musical Arts program in Collaborative Piano. The DMA program doesn't appear to have web documentation at this point--contact the school for more information.

I also managed to find a page on the previous incarnation of the BU site that lists audition and program information for the Master's Degree. Here are the audition requirements (check with the school to see if they are still valid):

Applicants must audition with all of the following repertoire. If requested, the School will provide collaborative partners. Applicants are urged to audition with their own collaborative partners whenever possible.

Vocal (Please prepare all songs in HIGH keys.)

Schubert Ganymed
Brahms Wie Melodien
Fauré La lune blanche lui dans les bois (from La Bonne Chanson)
Debussy C'est l'extase (from Ariettes Oubliées)
Barber St. Ita's Vision (from Hermit Songs)

Instrumental (Please prepare complete sonatas.)

Beethoven Violin Sonata Op.12 in D major
Brahms Violin Sonata No.2 in A major

Solo Work or movement less than 10 minutes in length from the Classical or Romantic repertoire; memorization not required.

Applicants will also be asked to sight read both vocal and instrumental literature. All applicants will be evaluated through a foreign language/IPA proficiency test.

This posting is part of a project to create links for all known Degree Programs in Collaborative Piano. If you know of a degree program that isn't on the main list, please email me info and web documentation and I would be glad to add it to the listings.
