MUSIC DEPARTMENT
PERFORMANCE PROGRAM



Mission and Scope
The Performance Program offers an educational period of eight terms. Students who successfully complete all the courses in eight terms graduate after submitting a project as their dissertation and playing their main instrument in a concert.
The Performance Program aims to train musicians well informed in music, especially in performance and theory. To that end, the program intends to give students both theoretical information and an artistic identity as a performer.
The program provides general musicology training as well as elective courses in the sub-branches of musicology according to the students' orientation. The program offers basic courses of instrument – performance courses (Piano, Guitar, Flute, Clarinet, Voice Training, Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass, Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar and Drums) and chamber music courses. Music theory (harmony, counterpoint, morphology, instrumentology, composition), music history and solfeggio are the basic music courses of the program. Students have the chance to be trained in fields outside of the program by taking University Elective Courses.
During four years of training, students participate especially in artistic activities. Students gain experience by attending events in and out of the department, composing music and giving concerts with the guidance of the academic staff.

Lines of work for graduates
Program graduates earn the title of performance artists. Graduates can work in orchestras and music societies, teach instruments in music courses, and, if they receive pedagogical formation, music teaching.
