For those passionate about singing or playing an instrument for others, a Music Performance major will teach you everything you need to reach musical excellence and refine your talent for professional performance.
Our foundational music courses allow students to delve into composition and conducting, study music theory and harmony, and examine major compositions and their historical contexts. By analyzing and practicing performance techniques and theory, you will develop new skills and sharpen your existing musical gifts. Our Music Performance program will stretch the limits of your abilities and provide active experience through music technology in our fully equipped music lab, vocal and instrumental ensembles, and personal music instruction and lessons.
Music Performance majors must choose a concentration in piano, vocal, or instrumental music performance and decide on a primary and secondary instrument to focus on over their four years. Every Music Performance student closes their four years of study with a culminating senior recital.
