The Department of Music offers a broad-based undergraduate major that combines the study of history, theory, composition, and performance. The core of the program consists of two years of theory (with associated labs that provide further training in the musicianship skills necessary for all musical endeavors), three semesters of the history of Western music, participation in University ensemble, and three electives chosen from a broad array of topics. Students may, if desired, opt for one of five specialized tracks within the music major or work with a faculty adviser to propose an alternate program in accordance with their own interests. Musical Theater Performance The track in musical theater performance, open to qualified students by audition, allows students with an interest in musical theater to pursue that dream. In addition to taking courses in the music department, musical theater students are encouraged to participate in musicals produced by the Theater Arts Department and to enroll in a mix of music and theater electives. Students also present junior and senior recitals. Learning Goals The learning goals for the Music Department are based on an integrated approach to the study of music, encompassing a number of perspectives: Music as a technical discipline, with its own notation, materials and forms. Music as an artifact of different historical periods, cultures and societies, both Western and non-Western, in written as well as oral traditions. The practice of music in the context of both performance and composition. Music as expression and communication, fostering a deeply sympathetic understanding of peoples, a sense of community, and a humane and tolerant outlook on the world. In addition to the general requirements for the Music Major, students may enrich their experience by choosing to pursue one of five specialized tracks offered by the Department. Whichever route a student follows, course-work is built on three essential ways of knowing about and experiencing the field of music. MUSICAL THEATER PERFORMANCE TRACK As in the Performance Track, students are accepted into the MTP Track by audition. Core courses and electives include offerings specific to the track within the Theater Department. Students work with their private voice or instrumental teacher and track advisor to prepare two recitals: a half-length program in their junior year and a full-length one in their senior year. Upon graduation, MTP students will be prepared to pursue further study in musical theater or to audition for professional work.
