The Minor in General Music is designed to give students a background in music theory, music history and in music performance (both solo and ensemble settings). Students earning a B.M. degree or a B.A. in Music are not eligible for this minor.
Students passing out of MUS 130 , MUS 133 or MUS 134 by placement exam, must substitute an equal number of credits (as were passed by exam) from the upper-division elective courses in the minor.
Admissions process: Contact conservatory chair for an interview to determine if it is possible to complete the minor in time to graduate. If it is, you will be placed on the pre-minor list. After being placed on this list, you will be eligible to:
- Do an audition on your primary instrument.
- If you pass the audition, you may then submit the form declaring your music minor.
A minimum of 9 credits must be selected from upper-division courses.
