The music minor is a perfect add-on for undergraduate students who love music. The music program at Milligan produces life-long learners and lovers of music, as well as accomplished performers. Milligan’s music faculty consists of knowledgeable and experienced musicians who also are dedicated and caring educators whose focus is helping students achieve their musical goals.
Applied music study for the music minor may be in voice, piano, organ, guitar, brass, woodwinds, strings, or percussion. Each semester of their applied study, music minors take a jury in their principal applied area, unless they have completed a junior or senior recital after mid-term. Students who choose to continue their principal applied study in future semesters after completing degree requirements will be subject to the course requirements in the syllabus about recital performance, juries, etc.
Music minors must participate in a primary ensemble which uses their particular applied study skill and is approved by their applied professor for three semester hours. Ensembles include Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, Johnson City Community Concert Band, and Orchestra.
