The Value of Performance

An emphasis on performance is at the core of every degree program in the Ithaca College Center for Music. Under the guidance of professionals on the faculty, graduate students in music education continue to develop as musicians while expanding their knowledge of varied pedagogic techniques. All MM Summer students have the option of taking private lessons on their instruments and the opportunity to take part in an ensemble.

Quality Ensembles

While the exact line up of ensembles will vary depending on the instrumentation available, past offerings have included:

  • Chamber orchestra
  • Chorus
  • Concert band
  • Chamber ensembles


Students prepare for musical performances through weekly private lessons and one-hour repertory classes with major teachers and fellow students. Repertory classes provide opportunities for students to perform for each other, review performance techniques, and meet guest artists.
