The Music Department strongly encourages its majors to extend and refine their performance abilities during their student years by enrolling in at least one performanceoriented course each term that they are students. A fundamental guideline for all students pursuing the major and minor in music is that they should have a healthy balance between academic courses (history, theory, style analysis) and performance courses (chamber ensembles, jazz ensemble, applied music lessons).
