If the above program of study is not available at the student's community college, we encourage students who anticipate transferring to the University of Nebraska at Kearney for this degree program to enroll in any courses possible in music theory, ear training, applied music lessons, (major and minor areas), piano techniques, instrumental techniques and voice techniques.

All students planning to major or minor in music must complete admission requirements as determined by the Department of Music and Performing Arts. Application for admission including audition must be submitted prior to enrollment. Music majors and minors must choose an area of applied music and meet the proficiency standards of the Department for admission and graduation. All new students will audition to determine their performance level. All incoming students, including transfer students, will also take placement tests in the areas of theory, ear-training, sight singing, piano skills, and performance.
