The Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance is a selective program designed to allow students to pursue in-depth study in the area of instrumental or vocal performance. The coursework is designed to guide each student to a better understanding and mastery of their chosen instrument in an environment that provides the individual attention needed to develop both technical and interpretive skills. It will also help each student to develop a broad understanding of the field of music and the factors that influence its role in the United States and abroad. In addition to their core music courses, students will find many opportunities for performance in both solo and ensemble settings and elective courses organized to help students prepare for continued study at the graduate level.
