All music majors participate in at least one performing ensemble (Cliff Singers, Chamber Choir or the BCU jazz ensemble).
Music majors are to register for recital attendance each semester of enrollment and are required to attend all music performances given by faculty and students, on and off campus.
Music majors must pass a piano proficiency exam by the end of the second full year of study in order to continue in the program as a music major. The proficiency exam in piano includes demonstrating the ability to perform vocal exercises, scales, chord progressions, choral score reading, harmonization, transposition, and the performance of vocal accompaniments.
A senior recital or senior project, approved by the music faculty, must also be completed before graduation.
