About this Degree
From symphonic winds to orchestra and jazz bands to chamber ensembles, the School of Music at CSUF provides its students with a wide range of repertoire and performance skills to meet the demands of today’s musicians.
The University Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band and University Band, with an emphasis on musical performance, are part of an ongoing tradition aimed to perpetuate and maintain a great American cultural heritage. These ensembles perform music by composers including Sousa, Gershwin, Bernstein, Ives, Copland and others. Through the study and performance of this genré, musicians will not only develop an appreciation for the music of our time, but will further the tradition of excellence in wind performance at Cal State Fullerton, as well as the traditions of the American Concert Band.
The Master of Music in Performance, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion at California State University Fullerton is an applied-based degree requiring 30 units of study in private lessons, ensembles, chamber music, history and literature, and theory. The Cal State Fullerton School of Music faculty include nationally and internationally recognized performers. Students thrive in an environment large enough to engage in challenging, vital music-making, but intimate enough for specialized individual attention. For those intending to pursue doctoral studies, the Master of Music degree normally leads to the DMA.
