Program Overview

Centered on training, a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance from Saint Mary's provides students the expertise necessary to pursue a career in music.

The music performance degree, within the context of the liberal arts undergraduate university, provides students with the broadest possible educational foundation for lifelong musical success.

As part of their educational experience, music performance majors at Saint Mary's will be required to take weekly private lessons to improve their musicianship skills, perform in regularly scheduled departmental recitals, and present junior and senior recitals.

Career Options

Music performance majors will be prepared to pursue careers such as arts administrators, composers, elementary, middle, and high school teachers, librarians, musicians and singers, and recreational therapists.

Taking Classes

This residential, four-year program is offered on our Winona Campus, with daytime classes and a full student life experience.
