Music - Applied

Composition Courses, and Pedagogy Courses — Course Work with Special Fees

Applied music encompasses the areas of instrumental and vocal performance requiring individual studio instruction. Other courses in music requiring highly specialized individual application such as composition and pedagogy are also taught through corresponding individual studio instruction. Studio instruction is offered in applied music performance courses for one (1) to two (2) hours of credit. Studio instruction is offered in composition for two (2) hours of credit and in pedagogy for three (3) hours of credit. Studio instruction is limited to music majors. A special fee will be charged for registration in applied music, composition, and pedagogy courses offered in a studio lesson format.
