Open Skies, Stars Ablaze, Fires burning high, grass beneath your feet, great music, high spirits, bloody good food and all that makes an Arts and Music Festival Great – Monkey Town! Students in a professional track (voice, keyboard, instrumental or composition) will generally take 78 hours in music. The Culture, Arts & Music philosophy is to blend education with entertainment, providing people of all ages with fun opportunities to soak up the unique styles, flavors, and heritages of the world.
All vocal students will have opportunities to perform with instrumental ensembles, in jazz vocal ensemble and chamber singers, and participate in the student music festival and in larger music productions such as opera and music theater. Many graduates also pursue careers as private music teachers or as church musicians.
Note: Students in the Music Composition emphases may petition to substitute MUS 224G and 224J Composition lessons for the four semesters of private instrument lessons required in the degree. That grant round will close on Tuesday 7 February for projects starting after 1 May 2017.
