Bachelor of Music in Performance

The Bachelor of Music with a major in Music Performance is for students that want pre-professional training focused on musical performance.  Students must show a high level of preparation on their major instrument or voice, and strong overall musical potential to enter the program.  The program is designed to prepare students for performing, teaching, or graduate programs.
