Music Performance Minor
Minor Advisor: Heather Mundwiler, firstname.lastname@example.org
This minor provides students with high-level training in instrumental or vocal performance. Four semesters of individual study are taken concurrently with four semesters of ensemble. A music theory course and a music history course provide basic historical and theoretical background in support of performance studies.
Admission to the minor in music performance is based on a required performance audition before a faculty committee prior to enrolling in the minor. Audition information, including requirements, can be found at music.umd.edu/admissions/undergraduate.
Students who fulfill minor requirements will receive a minor on the official transcript. Please contact the School of Music office for more information.
