Simply add in the self-discipline and intellectual curiosity necessary to succeed, and you're well on your way. You also have the unique opportunity to combine a challenging and dynamic Conservatory experience with the broad-based learning provided by Capital’s liberal arts core curriculum. That will make you well rounded and adaptable, which is exactly the skill set you need to perform well — in any field.
From start to finish, the Music Performance program of Capital University emphasizes performance in all aspects of study. Begin by choosing one of four areas of emphasis:
These areas of emphasis include wide-ranging performance experiences, from solo and stage to instrumental, choral, chamber and large ensemble. Then add a core curriculum that centers on applied lessons, music theory, history, keyboard studies, conducting and world music. The result is intense personalized instruction by world-class performers and educators, and outstanding practical experience — the perfect formula for a successful and rewarding career.
Capital’s performance majors go on to do great things in the world of music. Many pursue advanced degrees at the finest graduate schools in the country, like Indiana University, Eastman School of Music, Yale University, Manhattan School of Music and more. Others are living their dreams with opera houses and orchestras, or as solo or ensemble performers in this country or Europe. In fact, students who pursued their dreams and followed their passion with a Performance degree from Capital have performed on Broadway, with the Santa Fe Opera, the Columbus Symphony, the Indianapolis Symphony and with standouts like Maestro Lorin Maazel and Peter Frampton. Their lives and careers as performers took shape at Capital, and they’re even more meaningful today — impacting the world through music.
