Description

The Music Performance program offers serious music students an opportunity structured to prepare them to be working musicians specializing in guitar or piano. The programs are designed to develop students' competence in a variety of music performance, production, and promotion skills. The program provides knowledge and skills in such areas as instrument tuning and repair, scales and chords, and understanding the social context of music. Application of performance, delivery, and ensemble skills will be emphasized. An added feature of the program is the emphasis on developing the self-promotion skills that are critical to the success of a working musician. Program completers will be encouraged to be creative in fitting music into their lives, whether as working musicians or skilled amateurs.

Voice students should see Tracy Komarmy. Guitar and piano students should see John Lawrence.
