Music Performance

A minor in Music Performance is ideal for students who arrive at University of the Ozarks with a passion for music and some previous training in voice and/or keyboard but have chosen a professional career in another discipline. In addition to improving musical abilities in voice, piano, or organ through private lessons with artist studio teachers and/or ensemble directors, our Music Performance minors also gain insight into the field through academic courses including Musicianship, Music Literature, and a variety of upper level music electives that can be chosen to fit the student’s specific interests and aspirations. Completing a Music Performance minor will enable teachers, scientists, businessmen/women, etc., to be marketable and valuable assets as solo performers and/or collaborative keyboardists in their communities, churches and schools.
