When you study music, you build a repertoire of skills that apply well beyond the field of music. You’ll instill personal discipline, refine problem-solving skills and abstract thinking and improve memory and intellectual capacity. You’ll also explore your artistic potential while building collaboration and leadership skills with other musicians. With these skills, you’ll be well-prepared to go on to a variety of career, graduate school and ministry options.

Your studies will focus on the theoretical, historical, and stylistic aspects of musical practice; relate each of these to the vast literature of music, and demand the highest level possible of technical and artistic achievement in performance. The Performance program is offered by Wheaton College Illinois,
