Don Wright Faculty of Music - Music Program - Certificates and Diplomas

This is a program primarily for students who wish to concentrate on the study of Music Performance concurrent with a course of study leading to an academic degree at Western.

Although diploma holders represent performers of high artistic attainment, graduate schools generally require an academic degree as well.
In addition to the normal admission requirements of the Faculty of Music applicants must demonstrate a performance level of at least a Conservatory Grade X standard, and show evidence of exceptional performance ability before a jury.
