Overview

All music performance students receive weekly private lessons, and most receive additional instruction in their teacher's weekly studio class. Chamber music coaching and participation in large ensemble rehearsals give students valuable hands-on training. Master classes, workshops, and lectures by visiting artists further enhance the learning experience.

The School of Music is taking a leadership role in the integration of technology in the educational process as we develop distance learning collaborative projects with prestigious music conservatories and universities in the United States and Korea. Performance students will soon be able to receive instruction from some of the world's finest teachers without leaving our campus.

We also provide numerous performance opportunities for students at the weekly General and/or Area Recital Hour and in our many resident ensembles. Winners of our annual Undergraduate and Graduate Concerto Competitions get a chance to perform as soloists with the Ball State Symphony Orchestra. Students also may book full-length recitals in our state-of-the-art performance venues and have them recorded professionally. Ball State's performance-rich environment offers many concerts by faculty members, visiting artists, and student ensembles.
