The Department of Music Performance & Instruction integrates the study of music with instrumental and vocal performance. We offer services in two key areas: musical performance and musical instruction. Our performers have a wide range of talents in music, from opera and classical repertoire to traditional Arabic music and dance. We also offer classes to both children and adults in these areas as well as instrumental instruction. Our teaching philosophy stems from the ideology of a community raising a child and the use of alternative teaching techniques that seek to approach education from a multidisciplinary standpoint.
