So You Want to Be a Music Major?

from Cleveland Institute of Music

Program image

Participants will meet CIM students who will perform live and discuss
ways that they prepared to be college music majors.  We will identify the steps students should be
taking in high school to prepare themselves for this unique and demanding
major.  Ample time for interactive
discussion with CIM’s student performers is provided. An optional
post-conference activity provides for more in depth learning as students
analyze and discuss the performances they heard and reflect upon what they have
learned.
