In this program, you will study practical skills, such as performance, composition, and technology— which will push your musical abilities further than you thought possible. You’ll also learn music theory and history to ensure you have a strong foundation from which to leap. Working one-on-one with professors, who are professional composers and highly regarded performers, you’ll perfect the skills you’ve been practicing all your life. Outside of the classroom, you’ll have your pick of musical ensembles to join—from Jazz to guitar to percussion to contemporary. If your talent is voice, you can join the Choral Union, which performs a variety of genres, or the Lachrimae, which is dedicated to music, costume, and dance from the Middle Ages and Renaissance era.
