The BMus program in performance with a concentration in an orchestral instrument focuses on the study of music literature and techniques on a specific orchestral instrument. Students receive coaching from world-renowned faculty and visiting guest artists, attend masterclasses, and receive extensive performance experience in large ensembles as a chamber musician and as a soloist.
Students study a specific orchestral instrument intensively with a faculty member for eight semesters including major repertoire, solo literature and chamber music. Training is focused toward preparing students for a career in orchestral or chamber groups, in military bands or as a private lesson instructor. Students learn skills that prepare them for auditions and learn how to network with other musicians, how to market themselves professionally, and how to schedule and organize recitals and performances.
