About the Program
Tianjin Juilliard offers a unique program of study dedicated to preparing musicians for careers playing in professional chamber music ensembles. The major is open to violin, viola, cello, and pianists leading to a Master of Music degree in instrumental and chamber music studies. This program, through private lessons and coaching from our international faculty in residence and guests, creates a foundation for individuals and existing chamber ensembles who are ready to establish themselves professionally. As an instrumental and chamber music studies major, you will be placed in chamber music groups that are coached weekly and you will receive weekly private lessons on your instrument.
