More specialized courses in these areas and in music theory and methods for music teachers are offered for cultural enrichment and for the professional preparation of performers and teachers. Performance organizations are open to all university students by audition. These include bands (marching, pep, symphonic, and wind ensemble), chamber ensembles (strings, winds, and vocal), choir, opera, jazz (bands and combos), and orchestra. Specific offerings depend on enrollment and availability of faculty.

NOTE: For all students entering the Bachelor of Music–Applied Music degree programs, any grade of C- or lower in the coursework for the major must be repeated (courses may only be repeated once).
