Our goal is to impart a classical music education using modern teaching methods. The curriculum is especially designed to allow the prospective student be able to construct a more flexible study plan that can be geared to more personal career outcomes. Our desire is to have our students be representative of the best that Turkey has to offer.
Yasar University’s Music Department, part of the Art and Design Faculty, opened in the 2008–2009 academic year. It is the first private music school in the system of Foundation Universities in the city of Izmir. Internationally recognized performers and teachers assure the highest of academic standards. The school boasts the latest in technology and supports a fine University Chamber Orchestra.
In having an internationally acclaimed faculty, our goal is to graduate students that will be able to undertake musical careers in any part of the world. The University Chamber Orchestra affords each student the chance to play both as an orchestral and solo musician. Because of our technological means, students will have their concerts recorded and broadcast via a number of media (TV, radio, and the internet). This will allow them to build a real work experience while studying.
