Commercial Performance

The performance emphasis for the Commercial Music major provides an excellent learning environment for the student who wishes to pursue music in both the professional and/or academic arena. This emphasis gives students opportunity to study with instructors that are established musicians in the studio and performance platforms. Classes in theory, ear training, harmony, ensemble arranging, applied lessons, and class piano courses create the foundation of the commercial performance emphasis student.

Performance emphasis students are given many outstanding opportunities for performing throughout their college years. Whether it may be singing with Phoenix, performing with peers in a variety of venues, or taking part in the auditions for our annual Commercial Music Showcase, the performance emphasis student graduates with practical training for the working musician.
