Music and Opportunity
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A) or minor in Music is a music degree offered for the student who desires to combine music with another major, such as business or psychology. This degree is crafted to help the student gain the skills and the knowledge needed to build a successful career in music.
All music majors and minors study and pass basic piano proficiency. Those with piano experience have a definite advantage, though several beginning and intermediate piano classes are available to help those with little or no piano background.
Music students perform in student recitals each semester. Applied professors help select those pieces appropriate for performance, and coach the student. Those students who choose to major in music perform a senior recital. Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Music also present a thirty-minute recital on their applied instrument during their senior year.
