Chapman Percussion Ensemble rehearses in the Crean Orchestral Recital Hall
Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music

» Bachelor of Music in Performance, Percussion

The Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance is an intensive program that focuses on classical training for solo, chamber, and orchestral experience. You'll also build a strong liberal-arts foundation to become a well-rounded, thinking musician with a firm grasp of both performance and theory.

During your time at Chapman, you will hone your musical skills, perform in your first year, take electives, and can even double-major in an additional academic subject.

Opportunities from the First Day

Not only are there ample performance opportunities for you in a variety of venues, including our state-of-the-art Musco Center for the arts, you'll be able to participate in ensembles your first year because we don't have a seniority system in the conservatory. When you audition for an ensemble, you are selected and seated based on your talent and level of commitment, so a freshman has as much opportunity as a senior to participate in any given ensemble. In addition to large ensemble opportunities, chamber music is encouraged and is a required part of the major's curriculum.
