Students must successfully audition before the music faculty for entrance into the Bachelor of Music degree program with a major in applied music.
Music programs within the Department are dedicated to the professional training of students in music education, applied performance, and music history. The Department's dedication to student and faculty participation in ensemble performance reflects the belief that interactive rehearsals and live performances teach music students the technology and social dynamics of being a musician. It is in ensemble playing where musical ideas are animated individually, instrument by instrument, but shared as a collaborative experience with fellow musicians and with the listening audience.
Music Education programs not only enhance the student's personal skills as a musician, but also prepares the student for teaching others how to explore their own musical talents.
