This is a spot graphic on the honors program page.The Music Honors Program is designed for highly talented, self-motivated students majoring in music. In the Department of Music, this program is also referred to as the Young Performing Artists Program. If you're interested in individualized attention from faculty and the chance to excel, read on.


As a member of the Honors program, you will receive valuable individual instruction and mentoring by a faculty member who works directly with you. You will also present a public recital sponsored by the Department of Music, or present a series of original compositions. On most occasions, the performance will be accompanied by a professional accompanist and is recorded. This recording is of great use to students who are applying for music positions, graduate schools, fellowships, and assistantships. If you complete the program, you will graduate “With Honors in Music.”
