Bachelor's degree options include performance, music education, jazz studies, composition and the Bachelor of Arts in Music. Master of Music programs are available in performance, the individualized major (which would include world music and jazz studies), and music education. We also offer the post-master's Performer's Certificate.

Applied guitar instruction is provided in a variety of private and group settings. Jazz studies majors receive group instruction on skills and improvisation the first two years of their program, and proceed to a one-hour private lesson for the remainder of their program. In addition to several jazz groups featuring guitar, students may participate in the Guitar Ensemble.
