Music

Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.

Typically, music programs concentrate on the historical, theoretical and technical aspects of music and performance. An interdisciplinary field, music is as much for the ambitious academic as it is for the aspiring professional musician.

The United States of America is located on the continent of North America. It is the third largest country by size in the world. It has a relatively short history compared to other world nations, has one of the world's largest economies, and has one of the world's most diverse populations.
