The MM in performance is a two-year, 32 credit program which is designed for musicians who have completed an undergraduate degree in music and want to pursue intensive graduate studies in performance. Two graduate recitals are required.
The performance major is available in voice, piano, organ, violin, viola, cello, double bass, classical guitar, jazz/studio guitar, harp, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and percussion.
The performance degree requires 32 credits distributed as follows:
The first recital must occur before the completion of 20 credits. Between twentyfive and fifty percent of the repertoire for one of the recitals must consist of chamber ensemble works (larger than instrument plus keyboard). The combined recitals must contain at least one work written within the past fifty years. Content of each recital must be approved by the student's graduate committee.
