Music Therapy Major



Music TherapyWe are excited to offer a Music Therapy major at Belmont beginning in Fall 2014!  The Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy undergraduate program has received approval to proceed from the University and we are continuing the various processes for accreditation approval.

Belmont’s Music Therapy undergraduate program offers a blending of classical and commercial music elements- a unique feature among Music Therapy programs, taking advantage of our strong musical diversity at Belmont.

Curriculum Checklists:

Music Therapy - Instruments

Music Therapy - Keyboard

Music Therapy - Voice

If you are interested in the Music Therapy undergraduate program, we offer the following options to complete the audition requirement:

1. Complete a classical audition for your principal performing area.  Refer to the Audition Requirements for your principal and select one of the classical majors- such as Music with an Outside Minor- for instructions.

2. Complete a classical audition for your principal performing area and also perform an optional commercial selection.  (This would mean that you would complete the entire classical audition for your performing area and also perform an optional commercial selection.)  For the optional commercial selection, the genres/styles include: Jazz, Country, R&B, Pop, Light Rock, Contemporary Christian, and Musical Theatre. 

 

Note to those auditioning as Voice Principals:

  • Students who are using an accompanist provided by the School of Music must provide full sheet music in the proper key. No lead sheets or chord charts allowed. Accompanists will not transpose or improvise. 
  • Students may not accompany themselves for the audition, but may put their own accompaniment on a CD to play with their audition.
