The Bachelor of Music degree with a major in instrumental performance is a preparatory sequence for students interested in pursuing a life as a professional performer. Students are enrolled in private instruction on their primary instrument for one hour each week with outstanding artist faculty. Students also have multiple opportunities for performance  including chamber ensembles, wind ensemble, orchestra, new music ensemble, jazz ensemble, and solo recitals. Instrumental performance majors also take classes pertinent to their future career including conducting, string/woodwind/brass techniques, and orchestration. Many students who finish their degree in this program will continue their study at the graduate level.
