I'm currently looking for colleges as well. Is there a huge difference in the major music performance and the major musical theatre? Some of the colleges I'm considering don't offer musical theatre as a major and I'm wondering if the two are pretty similar.
I would think the music performance is for singers not actors.
depends on the school.
Generally speaking, Music (or Vocal) Performance is going to have more classes in music theory, music history, foreign language, IPA, piano, etc, in addition to the expected vocal lessons. Musical Theatre will have a little of that, but also dance, acting, theatre history, basic theatre tech/design, etc.
