By focusing on the undergraduate experience and maintaining a close relationship with the theatre department, voice majors have the ability to participate in a wide range of performance opportunities here at Avila.


Collaborative Piano - The piano major is designed to offer many different performance and learning opportunities beyond the studio lessons, reflecting the different types of career paths available to our graduates. By engaging in these experiences, the Avila piano graduate is able to build on the core of music instruction to become a well-rounded musician that employers and graduate schools respect.
