The Master’s Degree in Performance of Classical and Contemporary Music Instruments is a professional degree. The objective is to train specialists in musical performance by offering a program of improvement in the instrument while concentrating on the specific repertoire in order to develop independently in a professional environment, either as soloists or as members of musical groups.

Admission process

For all specialties, a CV and a proposal must be sent specifying:

  • The main lines of interest about musical research related to your instrument and ideas on the subject of the final project.

  • A list with a proposal of the repertoire to study during the master program.

  • A link to Dropbox or a Yotube channel, or a DVD of a minimum duration of 30 minutes, with recordings of 3 fragments of works of different styles, or sufficiently differentiated parts of a complex work, of the instrumental specialty of choice. The recording, made with a fixed camera, must include the candidate’s image and sound. It is essential to include the date of the recording, since the performance must be withinf the last 6 months.

In case of doubt, or if the teachers consider it necessary, a face-to-face audition may also be requested.


The Master is divided into required and optional areas. Each area includes different subjects, of which some are common and others specific to the specialty.
