Applied Music Study

Through applied music study, each student embarks on a journey of growth and discovery with their instrument as a companion and a master teacher for a guide. Whether a student's field is music performance, education, technology or therapy, applied music study is a core experience in becoming a musician. One-on-one lessons give life to classroom courses in history and theory, encouraging the young musician to continually strive for higher levels of excellence. Graduates become musical leaders who are ready to begin a journey of discovery that will last a lifetime.
