The purpose of applied music is to help students develop technical and interpretive
skills on a specific instrument or voice. Private lessons, master classes and solo
performances are at the center of this course of study. Participation in large and
small ensembles offers additional performance opportunities.
Degrees offered in this division are Bachelor of Music, Master of Music and Doctor
of Musical Arts.
