Music, Voice Performance, B.M.


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).

Performance concentrates are required to present a senior full recital and a junior half recital. Students concentrating in performance must include four semesters in a secondary performance area of study (instrumentalists and vocalists may satisfy this requirement with MUP 129 , 130 , 229 , and 230 ).
