Meredith College to Offer a New Bachelor’s Degree Program in Music Performance

Meredith College, an educational institution for women in Raleigh, North Carolina, has announced the addition of a new bachelor’s degree program in music performance. Students will be able to choose from three concentration options: instrumental studies; piano/keyboard studies; and vocal studies. Typically, music courses make up two-thirds to three-quarters of the total coursework for a music major.

The degree will also have an emphasis on professional preparation, including courses in professional practices in music and music technology and a required internship. Students in the program will be able to take advantage of the arts-rich Research Triangle Park area in North Carolina in order to fulfill the internship requirement.

The new degree will build on Meredithʼs long history of excellence in music performance and education. Meredith will continue to offer bachelor’s degrees in music and music education.

“The bachelor of music is the gold standard of professional music performance degrees,” said Jeanie Wozencraft-Ornellas, head of the department of music. “It is an intensive program that provides more in-depth applied training and prepares students to be professional performing musicians. The degree program will meet the 21st-century need for students to have more flexibility in their pursuit of professional music training.”
