Introduction

The Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance is designed for the student who seeks to develop outstanding performance skills and musicianship within a liberal arts concentration. Music performance lessons, which pair students with a professor/professional on their primary instrument, are offered, and a variety of complementary activities in music theory, music history, jazz improvisation, and performance ensembles are provided. Students complete this four-year program in preparation for professional music opportunities or for future graduate study.

Study Abroad Opportunities

The Department of Music and Performing Arts has a history of travel abroad beginning in the early 1900s. Under the direction of Robert Nathaniel Dett, who served at Hampton from 1913 to 1932 and is credited with establishing the Department of Music and Performing Arts and was the director of the University Choir, students from the department traveled and performed extensively throughout Europe. More recently, the Marching Band was a guest performer in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The University Choir was a guest performer in Medellin, Colombia. The Department of Music and Performing Arts responds to travel abroad opportunities that provide growth and exposure for our students.

Most recently, The Marching Force has performed at the Vatican in Rome, Italy for the 2021 New Year’s Day Parade. The Marching Force has also performed in the 2020 Honda Battle of the Bands in Atlanta, GA, and the Macy’s Thanks Giving Day Parade in 2021! The Force plans to expand its international travels as it looks towards France and England.
