‘GRADE DE MASTER’ DIPLOMA (OFICALLY RECOGNISED AS BEING EQUIVALENT TO A UNIVERSITY MASTER’S DEGREE)
Students who hold a DNSPM awarded by the Lyon CNSMD can be admitted to master’s courses, providing that their master’s project has been validated by the teaching staff of the Lyon CNSMD. If this is not the case they are nevertheless allowed to apply to take the entry audition with external candidates. Candidates must be aged from 16 to 29.
Students can apply for master’s courses at the Lyon CNSMD if they hold a DNSPM or a bachelor’s degree (or a qualification from an institution in France or abroad which is recognised as being equivalent to a bachelor’s degree) in the specialisation concerned. Preliminary selection is based on the candidate’s written application.

Teaching is organised in three units:
Master’s studies take two years (no reduction in the length of the course is possible). The two-year course leads to a ‘grade de master’ diploma (officially recognised as being equivalent to a university master’s degree).
By virtue of the decree published by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research on 16th July 2010, the ‘grade de Master’ is conferred automatically on holders of master’s diplomas in music performance, choral conducting, musical culture, composition and writing awarded by the Lyon CNSMD.
The National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Lyon offers a professional training residency in string quartet allowing to deepen its practice and to perform for a year, in collaboration with the Opéra de Lyon and cellist Vincent Ségal for the 2021-2022 season.
The selected quartet will be associated with several concerts produced by the CNSMD de Lyon and the Opéra de Lyon, as a quartet or with Opera Underground guest artists of the season.
Along with various professional partnerships (Belle Saison, Pro Quartet, etc.)
