Academic Catalog

Music Performance

Deborah Martin, Professor

The Performance Studies department offers degrees in Performance Studies, Jazz Studies, and Sound Recording Technology. Students in Performance Studies and Jazz Studies delve deeply into the art and practice of music through performance experiences such as recitals, ensembles, and chamber music.  Students are encouraged to explore a wide range of avenues and venues in which they can share their calling of music with the world around them. Sound Recording Technology majors develop as strong musicians through a 4-year study of their instrument, complementing their rigorous curriculum as sound recording technicians.

Performance Studies faculty are predominantly full-time resident faculty who model a wide variety of careers that successfully combine performance, collaboration, teaching, and leadership within the profession.

Majors

  • Performance Major — B.M. - This degree program provides intensive study on a student’s primary instrument through lessons, expansive ensemble experiences, additional supporting coursework, and two required recitals (in the student’s junior and senior years). Students must audition before a faculty member(s), and must exhibit the potential to fulfill, with distinction, the recital obligations of the program. Current students interested in adding the Performance degree should arrange their audition through Music Admissions.
  • Performance and Music Education Major — B.M. - (Nine semester program of study) — This single degree program combines intensive study on a student’s primary instrument, including two required recitals, with a rigorous sequence of music education classes, including student teaching experiences in both the junior and the senior years. The degree allows the prospective music teacher an opportunity to achieve vocal and instrumental certification for kindergarten through the 12th grade (K-12). Students must interview with a faculty member of the Department of Music Education, and audition before a faculty member(s) and exhibit the potential to fulfill, with distinction, the recital obligations of the program. Current Music Education degree students interested in adding the Performance degree should arrange their audition through Music Admissions.
  • Sound Recording Technology Major — B.M. - This degree program combines foundational study of music with a specially designed, four-year sequence of coursework in audio production and music recording. In addition to passing a standard music audition, applicants for this program must have a personal interview with the faculty who teach in the sound recording technology program, and submit a letter of recommendation that supports the applicant’s technical aptitude. Ideally, applicants should have completed advanced mathematics (e.g., trigonometry, calculus) and a physics course. 
  • Jazz Studies Major — B.M. - This program combines a focused curriculum in jazz, including jazz theory, history, and performance (jazz lessons, ensemble, and combos), with classical technique and core musicianship. During the audition, applicants for this program must demonstrate proficiency in jazz and classical technique, satisfying listed audition requirements in both areas.
  • Performance, Collaborative Emphasis — B.M.  This degree program supplements the piano performance program of study (including semiannual juries, proficiency examinations, and two solo recitals) with intensive study of foreign languages, diction, chamber music, duo sonata and art song literature, and opera. Lessons and coursework focus careful attention on the technical and musical skills of the young solo pianist, while providing a solid foundation for further study as a collaborative pianist.
