The Doctor of Musical Arts curriculum (D.M.A.) is a rigorous and selective program intended for performer-scholars who combine the highest standards in their major area, with proven accomplishments in musicology and music theory. It is designed to provide professional musicians with the necessary knowledge and skills for artistic, cultural, social, and educational leadership. The D.M.A. degree is offered in performance (which includes all areas of solo performance, conducting, collaborative piano, and jazz), composition (classical and jazz), and music theory. NEC's goal is to enroll a small class each year in order to ensure the highest degree of flexibility and individual attention. Additional information is available in the D.M.A. Handbook.
