Objectives: 1. Musicianship: Students will demonstrate proficiency in aural and keyboard musicianship. 2. Performance: In their area of specialization students will confidently interpret and perform a wide range of music literature in a public venue. 3. Music in a Historic and Cultural Context: Students will listen to and write about music critically and will be able to apply stylistic principles to the music they perform. 4. Music Theory: Students will have a command of undergraduate music theory concepts, contrapuntal techniques, and musical forms.
