Launched in the fall of 2020, The Tianjin Juilliard School Graduate Studies program is transforming the landscape of music-making and education in China. Musicians will earn a Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School in the first joint venture to offer a U.S.-accredited music degree in China. The Tianjin campus is uniquely focused on collaborative musicianship and provides extensive performance opportunities throughout China, Asia, and beyond. The graduate degree is offered exclusively in collaborative majors – orchestral studies, chamber music, and collaborative piano.

At the heart of Juilliard’s reputation for excellence is a faculty of distinguished artist-teachers. Students will work with an international roster of resident faculty, visiting faculty from The Juilliard School in New York, and other leading artists from around the world. The challenge embraced by our faculty is a complex one: to nurture and guide each musician toward the fullest expression of their potential, and to equip each student with the professional skills and experience to pursue a career in the arts.

Coaching, lessons, and rehearsals will engage musicians in an imaginative and constructive exchange of ideas. Students will strengthen their unique musical voice through individual mentorship, and develop musical dialogue with their peers through ensemble playing. Through coursework, students will strengthen their ability to generate and communicate interpretative opinions and explore the nature of collaboration.
