B.M. Vocal Performance Major


MUSIC_WEBSITE_6.jpg
Semester by Semester Plans

The Vocal Performance major prepares students who desire to perform professionally or who wish to pursue graduate degrees in vocal performance or vocal pedagogy. This degree also provides a solid foundation for students who ultimately desire to teach applied voice either in a private studio or in a collegiate setting. This degree will not adequately prepare students to pass the state teacher certification exam. Students who have a strong interest in vocal or choral performance, opera, or musical theatre are strongly encouraged to choose the Vocal Performance major.  See requirements below.
