The School of Music provides a variety of majors to create a flexible and diverse curriculum that addresses the needs of students in the 21st century. The Master of Music degree offers major areas of emphasis in composition, collaborative piano, conducting, instrumental performance (woodwind, brass, string and percussion), musical theatre, music education, piano pedagogy, piano performance, vocal pedagogy, and vocal performance.

Master of Music in Jazz Studies (M.M.)

The Master of Music in Jazz Studies is a specialized program allowing the student to concentrate in a traditional performance option or commercial music production (instrumental or vocal). Both options develop a high level of performance proficiency in jazz and commercial music styles and expand creative skill, pedagogical practice, composition, arranging and music technology at a more comprehensive level than can be obtained on the undergraduate level.
