The Music Technology and Production curriculum prepares students for a life in music. UNF Music graduates hold positions in all aspects of the music industry, including performing in the nation's top professional and military ensembles, composing and arranging for the industry's leading artists, touring internationally, and serving as leading pedagogues in music education. This concentration prepares students for careers in all facets of music technology and production, including studio recording and live sound engineering.
The music performance concentration in Music Technology and Production prepares musicians to be sound engineers.

There are two tracks in piano. The audition option you choose makes a potential impact on how many piano-related courses you will take as part of the program. The audition requirements for both tracks require two repertoire pieces of contrasting style. Both should be based on printed sheet music (please bring a copy with you to the audition). At least one should be classical music.
Audition Option A:
