Bachelor of Arts in Music
The Bachelor of Arts in Music is one of the most flexible degree programs that is offered at the Greenwood School of Music. Although musically robust, this major is intended to provide opportunities for students to explore non-music disciplines. For example, many students pursue a double major in another field, or combine pre-law or pre-medicine preparation with their musical studies.
The Bachelor of Arts in Music is a degree program designed for students who wish to meet the intellectual and musical challenges of a rigorous program that promotes broad experience and diverse education. This major comprises a balanced program that encourages excellence in performance while providing academic courses, private instruction, and ensemble experiences that foster understanding of musical languages, historical developments, and compositional styles.
One of the Greenwood School of Music’s greatest resources is its diverse and vibrant faculty. Our students enjoy the benefits of music educators who bring years of experience and expertise in teaching and performing to the process of nurturing musical development.
The core curriculum in music theory and history provides the common foundation for advanced study of specialized subfields in music (management, performance, theory, composition, conducting, music education, musicology, etc.) at the graduate or professional level.
