Our chamber music program will be one of the first in China dedicated to preparing musicians for careers playing in professional chamber music ensembles. Tianjin Juilliard will offer a unique program of study for violin, viola, cello, and piano leading to a Master of Music in chamber music. An important aspect of the program is apprenticeship, under which students, faculty, and guest artists rehearse and perform together. Private weekly instruction with a faculty member in violin, viola, cello, and piano is also required.
Tianjin Juilliard’s cutting-edge chamber music curriculum will explore the nature of collaboration. Students will work alongside faculty and guest artists in chamber music groups, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of high-level chamber music festivals. Coursework in music history and analysis explores the development of chamber music genres and chamber music repertoire, creating a true immersion experience. The Tianjin Juilliard chamber music program aims to create a foundation for chamber music ensembles and individuals who are ready to establish themselves professionally within China or internationally.
