The Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree is the professional approach to the music major for the student who wants a strong foundation in music, combined with in-depth training in specific aspects of the art. The department offers concentrations in Choral or Instrumental Music Education and Performance (guitar, percussion, piano, strings, vocal, or winds).
Designed for those who plan to teach in grades P-12, the concentration in Music Education leads to state teaching certification. Students earning this degree concentration must qualify for admission to the Teacher Education Program of the College of Education , and must perform a half recital during the senior year.
Students may adopt either a general/choral emphasis or an instrumental emphasis. Those in the general/choral area must also select either voice or piano as a primary performance area, and must follow it consistently throughout the degree program.
