Minor in music?

Posted: Tue Mar 13, 2012 5:56 pm



I am planning on majoring in either aerospace engineering or physics...how hard would it be to minor in piano performance with one of these majors? (or is that even possible)?

Most schools just have a music minor. It has a list of required courses and some flexible room for other credits. You usually need private lessons on an instrument, which you could do on piano. Your other flexible credits could be applied to whatever you would want to learn in music. A music minor would help you stand out if applying to graduate schools. It is a little more time consuming than most other minors, but you will learn a ton, meet great people, and have a good time.

That's what I'm doing also actually.
I got to the University of Washington and I'm majoring in Aerospace Engineering. I've just been taking 2 major required classes a quarter and then having my easy class be classes that satisfy the music minor requirements. If you can figure out how to get your schedule to work it isn't too hard to get a minor.

..and I would imagine that in any part of the country, a good piano player can almost make a second career out of accompaniying things. Especially if the state you are in has a big solo $ ens program. It colud'nt be a bad thing to do From what I know of the colleges around here (Ohio), the music minor would be 20 credit hours of music classes, and I don't think you can choose "performance" or "theory/comp"..it is just a music minor. It has been a while since I was actually "in" college tho so things might have changed

If you are interested in physics and music, you should check out grad school programs in acoustics. I occasionally see acoustic engineer positions at NASA and Boeing. There are a lot of other specialties in acoustics as well. I ended up in architectural acoustics.

I like it a lot, though being so very specialized means you have fewer employment choices. On the up side, starting your own business requires very little cash, so I went out on my own a while back.
