Music History and Musicianship are the two basic components of the Instrumental Music curriculum.

Musicianship is a "hands on" class where students engage in a variety of repertoire, learning to hear, sing, dictate, play, improvise, and write music.

Music History is a 3-year course providing an overview of western, world, vernacular, and classical music. Students learn to listen, hear, and write about music.
