Our performance degree track is a four-year program in which students have the opportunity to study with master teachers, many of whom are symphony members, international recording artists, and renowned performers. Performance students take applied studies in keyboard, orchestral instruments, and voice and have opportunities to perform in a variety of ensembles which rank among the finest in the country.

No matter your path - Brass, Studio Jazz Guitar, Classical Guitar, Keyboards & Sacred Music, Percussion, Strings, Voice, Woodwinds, or Jazz, the Mary Pappert School of Music can prepare you to be a leader in the musical culture of the 21st century.
