Music Performance: Woodwinds

Bachelor of Music in Music Performance: Woodwinds

The performance curricula are especially designed for students wishing to prepare themselves as performers or as teachers of a particular instrument or voice.  The increased interest of society today in the arts is creating many new opportunities for the professional musician and for the private music teacher.

If a student is a performance major whose major instrument is in the woodwind family and s/he shows strong performance ability on another woodwind instrument, the student may qualify for the performance curriculum in woodwinds.  Approval for admission to this curriculum will not be given by the woodwind faculty until after the first year of study, at which time the student must achieve an appropriate level on three of the five woodwind instruments.
