Overview

The Instrumental concentration is designed for students whose major focus is a band or orchestra instrument (brass, woodwinds, percussion, strings, etc.). Along with the required courses for all Music Education majors, methods courses for the Instrumental Concentration include advanced classes in either brass and woodwind methods or advanced classes in upper and lower strings methods. The same holds true for advanced repertoire classes in these areas. Instrumentals also take a vocal methods class designed for non-vocal majors.
