The DMA is aimed at those wishing to undertake advanced research in music composition or performance. It involves scholarly research in the form of a supervised research thesis and performance practice (such as a public music performance or the presentation of compositions).
Students make a significant contribution both intellectually and in practice to either the interpretative and/or technical practice of musical performance, or the technical and creative practice of musical composition.
The degree involves a combination of written and practical work (in composition or performance). For information on requirements for each of these disciplines, see the Regulations for the Doctor of Musical Arts.
Participants can start at the first day of any month.
The DMA requires a Master of Music with Distinction or Merit, or a Bachelor of Music with Honours with First or Second Class Honours (Division I).
