The CAS in advanced instrumental/vocal training course is designed for musicians who have completed their initial training at a specialised university or have substantial professional experience, and who wish to continue their personal development in a field of performance involving their own instrument or voice.
Applicants must normally have a master’s degree or one deemed equivalent. Applicants without a university degree may be admitted to the course if they can provide other evidence of their ability and can demonstrate significant professional experience as musical performers (concerts, tours, recordings, etc.).
Incomplete application documents will not be accepted.
The application documents must be submitted by 1st March 2023.
Candidates are admitted to the CAS in instrumental or vocal perfection at the Geneva School of Music (HEM) through a competition. The first step is to submit an application form. If the application is complete and admissible, the candidate is then invited to send a video recording (instrumental or vocal performance).
Applicants will be asked to explain their motivation in an interview with the jury and to provide the details needed for a full understanding of why they have applied.
