Provides students with the opportunity to study music on their instrument or voice, through active ensemble and individual performance experiences, individual and group studio instruction, as well as coursework that broadens the understanding of the intersection of music and culture.
A music minor is a great choice for a student who is passionate about music, but who chooses to major in another field. Our programs aim to broaden, as well as deepen, students' understanding of the art of music.
The Music Performance minor provides extensive technical and expressive training for aspiring student performers. In the ensemble setting, possibilities include Concert Choir, Jazz Band, Community Orchestra, Concert Band, and Chamber Choir. Individual studio lessons are another crucial component of performer development, as are courses in group vocal or instrumental instruction.
Many students have a serious interest in music and participate in our undergraduate ensembles, studios, and classroom courses, without pursuing either a major or minor.
