Students of music performance perfect their skills as musicians. Lessons, classes and recitals help students develop a personal style and prepare them for performing as soloists, ensemble players and accompanists.
Policies and procedures concerning enrollment in Music degree programs and applied music proficiency exams are detailed in this catalog and in the Music Student Handbook issued each fall. Some program requirements and procedures may be listed in the handbook rather than in this catalog. Each student must obtain current information concerning the degree program from that source.
