    Music Performance, BM (Piano Concentration)

    Program Information:

    This program of study offers a Bachelor of Music degree. Students audition for placement into one of four music performance concentrations (Piano, Voice, Instrumental, Jazz).

    All three undergraduate music degrees offer applied instruction in piano, voice, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion, harp, guitar, violin, viola, cello, and double bass. Only certain applied areas are offered in the jazz concentration within the Bachelor of Music in Performance.

    Admission to all degree programs in the School of Music is contingent upon admission to Kennesaw State University, completion of a supplemental application and successful audition with the School of Music, and demonstration of successful academic performance. All prospective music majors and minors are required to audition for the faculty on their principal instrument or voice. Applied music study may not be initiated until the student has been fully accepted as a major or minor by the School of Music. All students enrolling at KSU for a second degree in music must meet the same departmental audition requirements required of all incoming students. Auditions, conducted by the music faculty, are held on the Kennesaw State University campus on specific dates.

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Music Performance - Piano Concentration degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog.. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggest to prevent delays in program completion.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
