The purpose of applied music is to help students develop technical and interpretive skills on a specific instrument or voice. Private lessons, master classes and solo performances are at the center of this course of study. Participation in large and small ensembles offers additional performance opportunities.

Degrees offered in this division are Bachelor of Music, Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts.
