The Bachelor of Music (BMus) program focuses on contemporary music making in multiple styles and genres. We believe that an undergraduate music program in a liberal university should strive to be more of a laboratory for creativity and experimentation than merely a conservatory of past traditions.
Our foundational curriculum combines courses in music theory, music history and culture, musicianship skills, keyboard skills, improvisation, composition, intensive ensembles, and one-on-one music lessons with professional teachers. The aim is to graduate well-rounded musicians who can thrive in a variety of professional contexts.
All students in our unique Bachelor of Music program will develop as performers, composers, educators, improvisers, and musical leaders. The cornerstone of this innovative program is our Chamber Music Workshop. All students will participate by researching, playing and performing various repertoire with a small group and a faculty coach. Each group receives weekly coaching, academic lectures, assignments and various performance opportunities. We are very excited to share this dynamic program with you!
