What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Music degree is the undergraduate professional degree in music. Its primary emphasis is the development of the skills, concepts, and sensitivity essential to the professional life of a musician. In any of the roles as performer, composer, scholar, or teacher, the professional musician must function as a practitioner who exhibits not only technical competence but also a broad knowledge of music literature, sensitivity in musical style, and insight into the role of music in the life of humankind.

Organ lessons provide students with an opportunity to develop their abilities in the areas of technique, repertoire, and practical church service playing skills. Technical studies include those appropriate for early keyboard styles as well as those used in music written since 1800. Appropriate repertoire from the entirety of the organ's literature, from before 1600 to the present, is chosen to develop and enhance each student's technical and interpretative abilities. Church service playing skills include hymn playing, improvisation, accompanying, and conducting techniques for the organist-director.
