The degree Bachelor of Music with Concentration in Performance prepares students to pursue graduate studies in music, establish a private teaching studio, or enter a pre-professional young artist program. This is an intensive program that educates students to perform as soloists and as ensemble members. The degree emphasizes development of artistry through courses in performing, pedagogy, and literature. Performance opportunities are offered throughout the program and begin as early as the student’s first semester. Students present two solo recitals. Admission to the program is by audition after two semesters of applied music studies.

Sutdents are admitted to this degree program upon completion of a successful performance audition before the Applied Committee, which takes place at the end of MUSC 182 .
