MUS400: Advanced Instrumental/Vocal Study I

This is a performance course for qualified students who wish to devote one term to intensive study of their instrument or voice.

This is a performance course for qualified students who wish to devote one term to intensive study of their instrument or voice. With the guidance of their instructor, students work on technique and interpretation with the goal of developing their own musical voices. Students participate in twice-weekly performance classes where emphasis is placed on developing effective practice techniques and understanding the musical language of the music they are studying. Students are required to perform at in-house recitals and student concerts. Students taking MUS400 must take weekly private lessons as part of this course. In special circumstances, permission may be granted by the department chair for students to study with teachers who are not on the Academy's faculty.
