Artist Diploma in Music

General

Program Description

For music to thrive, the world needs change-makers who will question and dream about what comes next. While the desire to keep the canon of masterworks alive is laudable, it is no longer enough. Longy, in turn, places its primary focus on preparing students for a meaningful life in music. 

Wanted: Musicians who possess a keen desire to disrupt the status quo; who wish to contribute to society and be part of music’s evolution; who will join other artists in forging that future. 

Longy’s Artist Diploma program offers the opportunity for emerging musicians to craft, design, and curate artistic projects over a two-year residency period. The program is designed for exceptionally gifted musicians who demonstrate great potential to impact and change the world by challenging norms and breaking the mold.
