An entrance audition is required. All students must complete the core classes and then select electives from at least two categories in consultation with the BA Music Advisor, and directed toward a specific Capstone project (MUSC 182). Four lower-division semesters of applied lessons are required. Ensemble participation is a co-requisite of applied lessons at all times.
