History & Literature
Aimed at students with a particular interest in musicological research, the History & Literature track offers opportunities for students to pursue in-depth study in a variety of topics related to the history of musical composition. Core studies in music theory, aural skills, keyboarding, and music history are also required. The BMus in History & Literature builds an understanding of composers and historical nuances of each age and genre of classical music. Students can expect to cover the history of music from 1600 through the present, as well as focused studies on choral, solo, opera, keyboarding, symphonic and 20th-century music.
In addition to core studies, history & literature majors will also participate in weekly private lessons, studio classes, major ensemble, and masterclasses.
