The Music Foreign Study Program (FSP) provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance for young musicians to combine the study of music with intensive exposure to musical performance, while living in the undisputed musical capital of Europe. The opportunities to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of London afford unique learning perspectives, both inside and outside the classroom.

The program is open to members of the classes of '15 and '16-- vocalists, instrumentalists, and composers, as well as students who focus on music history, theory, or ethnomusicology. Selection will be based on a student's interest in music as demonstrated by past study and performance ability.

Music 70: Perspectives in Music Performance (taught by the FSP director), which focuses on historical, analytical, and practical aspects of performance, and includes attendance at thirty-plus public performances 
Music 71: The History of Music in England (taught by noted British Musicologist Professor Roderick Swanston)
