Tailored towards advanced instrumentalists and vocalists, the prestigious Single Studies program offers the opportunity to study with Conservatorium staff members on a one-to-one basis, outside the framework of tertiary degree study. Upon recommendation of the teacher, students have the opportunity to participate in ensembles run by the Conservatorium including the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, Elder Conservatorium Big Band, Elder Conservatorium Wind Ensemble, or any of the three choirs.
Lessons are either of 30 minute or 60 minute weekly duration during the University semester and lesson times are negotiated between the student and their teacher.
Single Studies is a non-award program which makes it entirely compatible to being studied concurrently with other tertiary courses. A small, limited number of prizes may be available to the most promising students each year. Prizes vary in value and are awarded on the basis of audition and at the discretion of the director.
One of the many advantages to enrolling in the Single Studies program is access to the Elder Music Library. Library card request forms are available from the Coordinator of the Access Centre (phone 8313 0304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
How can I apply?
Please return a completed application form to the Coordinator either by email (email@example.com) or by mail (post to the Access Centre Coordinator, Elder Conservatorium of Music, University of Adelaide, SA, 5005).
Musicians of an intermediate to advanced level of all ages are invited to audition, with applications for audition closing on the first Friday in November for auditions in late November and early December.
