Minor in Music Performance

Degrees Available
The Music Minor is an excellent option for students from any college to continue with playing an instrument or vocal performance without a major in the School of Music.

Students may concentrate on either Music Performance or Music Theory and History. An audition is required for students pursuing the Music Performance track. 

Students from any college may complete a minor in Music, selecting either an emphasis in theory/history or performance. Such a minor consists of at least 18 hours of course work in music. In the theory/history emphasis, six to nine hours of music theory, six to nine hours of music history, and three hours of music performance are required. In the performance emphasis, eight hours of performance instruction, four hours of appropriate ensemble, and six hours of music history or theory are required. A successful audition is required for private performance study in the designated area (level of performance expectation is that of entering freshman music major).
