Music is integral to expression, communication, and fostering community. In the words of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, “without music, life would be a mistake.”
The minor in music performance serves a wide variety of needs among the students who elect it. If you have studied voice or an instrument through your high school years, you may pursue that study at a more advanced level. Participants in bands, orchestras, and choirs can continue that activity at a higher level. Some find the minor an important adjunct to other studies such as speech pathology and audiology, speech communication, or broadcasting.
In short, this minor provides a foundation so that you can build music performance into your life as a balancing influence.
Does this sound like you?
- You studied music and performed in ensembles before college and want to continue study of your instrument/voice and performing.
- You will be pursuing a non-music degree, but can see that music will be a life-long passion.
You + a minor in music performance = perfect harmony. Ok, it’s a silly statement, but it might just be true.
