Program Details

  • All music education majors are encouraged to participate in both vocal and instrumental ensembles in preparation for teaching both types of ensembles.
  • All students taking applied lessons are provided time each week to work with a piano accompanist.

Scholarships are available for students who participate in music ensembles. Scholarships are granted based on audition for each ensemble. Scholarship recipients must meet mandated requirements for each ensemble to maintain scholarship eligibility.
