Instruction and experiences in music are provided to prepare students for careers in music, guide in the development of performance skills, increase aesthetic sensitivity, and enhance the cultural setting of both campus and community.
The department offers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music degrees. In each the main purpose is to develop in the student a conceptual understanding of historical and theoretical perspectives in music and their interrelationships as they affect listening, composing, and performing.
The Bachelor of Music degree is a professional program with a choice of two majors: Music Education or Music Performance. The Bachelor of Arts is a liberal arts degree. Formal acceptance as a music major or minor is accomplished by passing a performance audition before the music faculty and completing Theory I.
Piano proficiency is required of all majors. Requirements for minimum proficiency must be completed prior to application for upper division standing in the student's major performing area.
All students pursuing music degree programs will participate in a departmental music organization during each quarter in residence. Students whose performance area is voice will sing in a choir. Those whose performance area is instrumental will play in either the band or orchestra. Keyboard majors may substitute up to six quarters in accompanying practicum and approved small ensemble activities toward the fulfillment of this requirement.
The department lists a number of requirements for its majors which must be met without credit. These include concert and recital attendance, and performance classes. Detailed information regarding these and other requirements is included in A Guidebook for Students and Teachers, available at the music office.
Transfer students majoring in music must take a minimum of six quarter hours in applied music at Walla Walla College. All majors must continue study in their primary applied area until completion of the Senior Recital.
