Undergraduate Artist Certificate in Music Performance
|Apply for admissions|
Two Year Program (Applied emphasis in Piano, Violin, Viola or Cello)
The undergraduate certificate program in music performance is designed for students who wish to pursue a non-degree course of study concentrating almost exclusively on performance. Minimum undergraduate credits required for the certificate are 48. In addition to the general rules that are applicable for admission to the undergraduate program at Park University, specific admission requirements are:
- A high school diploma or equivalent
- An audition before the music faculty. In approved situations, a recording may be submitted in lieu of a live audition.
Course Requirements (48 Hours)
MU 195 - Applied Music - 5 cr.
This course will involve an in-depth analysis and selection of new repertoire to be learned during the semester.

Selected new learned repertoire will be performed in recital each year.

The applied area in the Undergraduate Certificate program is consistent with the already existing Graduate Certificate in Music Performance. An attempt is being made to have uniformity in our programs allowing a maximum flexibility in the applied area. The sequence of two theory classes is a current catalogue offering. Electives have been provided in order for a student to explore other areas of study, or in the case of an international student, if ESL classes are necessary.
