The concentration in performance is for students who wish to specialize in a particular instrument, or in vocal performance. All music performance students receive weekly private lessons on their major instrument. Opportunities for chamber music coaching and required participation in a variety of larger ensembles give students valuable performance experience.

The Music program offers individual private lessons in all areas of instrumental and vocal study with applied music faculty. Faculty members are drawn from the leading performers and teachers of the region, and they cover all orchestral instruments, as well as jazz, piano, and voice. Applied lessons normally incur an additional fee.

A successful audition is required for admittance to the Performance concentration.
