Music Performance Minor

University Park, College of Arts and Architecture (MUSIC)

PROFESSOR R.J. DAVID FREGO, Director, School of Music

The minor in music performance serves a wide variety of needs among the students who elect it. Those who have studied voice or an instrument through their high school years may pursue that study at a more advanced level. Participants in bands, orchestras, and choirs want to continue that activity at a higher level. Some find the minor an important adjunct to other studies such as speech pathology and audiology, speech communication, or broadcasting. This minor provides students in very demanding majors to build music performance into their lives as a balancing influence. Admission to the minor depends upon a successful performance audition.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
