Laurier’s diploma in Chamber Music is an opportunity for aspiring musicians to develop their skills. If you’ve completed an undergraduate degree or diploma in music and looking to continue studying the craft, this program is for you.

Over the course of two academic terms, you will receive intensive training from our faculty and instructors and be given every opportunity to improve your technical and performance skill. You'll have plenty of chances to perform, as there are numerous performance opportunities on campus and in the Kitchener-Waterloo community.

Are you already part of a pre-formed quartet or group? We encourage you to apply together so you can study as an ensemble.
