Master in Solo Performance – MIS

We prepare the performers of the 21st century


The Master in Solo Performance, MIS is a program aimed at training concert performers as soloists for all instruments of the symphony orchestra. The curriculum focuses on solo performance and soloist repertoire with orchestra. It includes innovative subjects that, when applied personally, are necessary tools to turn the performer into a true professional, providing a higher dimension to what has been previously studied. We also delve into the research facet of the performer, providing him/her with the essential resources for future professional and doctoral responsibilities. The wide range of prestigious interpreters and professors guarantees the quality of a unique Master's Degree in Europe.

MIS students have a platform for public presentation of concerts in prestigious venues inside and outside the Community of Madrid, as well as multiple opportunities to collaborate transversally with the rest of the Master's programs and the CSKG.
