PERFORMANCE

ADVANCED STUDIES FOR THE SERIOUS MUSICIAN

The Indiana Wesleyan University Bachelor of Music in Performance major is designed for students who wish to hone their skills for excellence in the world of classical music performance. This is an intense degree of specialization in the instrument for which God has gifted you. You will be prepared to compete at the highest level, to pursue advanced studies in music at the graduate level, and to share the love of Christ among classical musicians who may not step foot into a church, but still relish a good Bach cantata.

Whether your desire is to perform at the local, regional, or national level, the IWU Bachelor of Music in Performance program will give you the musical foundation you need in an atmosphere that will nurture your pursuit of Christ and your passion for your art.
