In the field of music, students have a choice of two different majors: Music Performance (voice, keyboard, selected orchestral instruments) or Comprehensive Music (required for students seeking New Jersey certification in the teaching of music). Music majors may also participate in a broad range of co-curricular activities including the University and Chamber Choirs, Orchestra, Pep Band, Jazz Ensemble, music and theatre workshops and more.
“I have a broad range of experience in both the professional and academic musical worlds. I draw upon this inspiration to provide fully realized musical performances that engage the performers to perform to the best of their abilities, both technically and emotionally.”Jason TrammAssistant Professor and Director of Choral Activities.
Students are offered a range of courses in music history, theory, technology, and conducting; a diverse selection of ensembles; and private lessons on their instrument or voice type. Juries, workshops, and recitals throughout the academic year offer opportunities for solo performing experience, and the major culminates in a public senior recital. Students are given exposure to major performing artists through concerts presented by our distinguished Arts Council, and related clinics and master classes provide opportunities for hands-on work.
