Coursework includes full course sequences in music theory, ear training, improvisation, European music history and jazz history, jazz arranging, and more. Two auditions are required for admission to either of these programs.  The applicant must submit an audio recording for the Jazz portion and attend a live audition for the Classical portion of the degree.
