Performance Courses

Major Instrument for Music Majors and Minors, Secondary Instrument for Music Majors

Performance studies are considered as non-liberal arts (NLA) courses for music majors because of the course emphasis placed on performance. Performance studies are considered as liberal arts (LA) courses for non-music majors because of the emphasis placed on fine arts in the context of a liberal arts education.

Upon acceptance into the program, performance and performance/music education (four-and-a-half-year) majors take a one-hour private lesson each week for 4 credits per semester. All other music majors take a half-hour private lesson each week for 2 credits. Additionally, each semester, all music majors take the 0.5 credit course 556-19900 Performance Repertoire and Pedagogy. Music minors take a half-hour private lesson each week for 2 credits. Music majors who have an additional requirement of private lessons on a secondary instrument (e.g., -- voice students who take private piano lessons) take a half-hour lesson each week for 1 credit. Music minors and music majors in secondary lessons do not take the 556-19900 Performance Repertoire and Pedagogy class for that instrument.

The following chart shows performance studies (principal) levels and credits to be taken within degree programs of the School of Music.
