Music Education BME - Vocal (KS) Concentration | Undergraduate Degree Program

Music Education BME - Vocal (KS) Concentration

This program seeks to serve the needs of our current and future students who seek to develop the knowledge, skills, concepts, and sensitivities essential to the professional life of the musician based on the educational foundation of the liberal arts. To successfully engage the professional world, the musician must exhibit not only technical competence but also broad knowledge of music and music literature, the ability to integrate musical knowledge and skills, sensitivity to musical styles, and insight into the role of music in the broader context of intellectual and cultural life.

The Voice Performance concentration offers opportunities for expanding the reach of music into the current culture of the institution. The university's historical commitment to voice performance is expressed through the numerous choral music programs, which serve as a key bridge to alumni, communities, and churches, both locally and nationally.
