Instrumental Performance Major
Students may major in piano, organ, harpsichord, violin, viola, violoncello, double bass, harp, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, trumpet, horn, euphonium, baritone, trombone, tuba, or percussion.
A student enrolled in this major normally takes two applied subjects, one a major (24-32 semester hours in the same applied area) and the other a minor (8 semester hours in the same applied area). Third- and fourth-year students must present satisfactory public junior and senior recitals as part of the requirements for the Instrumental Performance Major within the Bachelor of Music degree.
