This immersive experience will juxtapose an examination of musical language and culture (specifically the musical training in Japan as modeled with the martial arts “dojo”) with a performance tour that allows students to gain new insights into both the foreign culture and their own performance.

The tour will include extensive experiential learning opportunities with visits to important musical, cultural, and historical sites while studying the symbiotic relationship between the musical traditions and the culture of the host country.

This study tour fulfills the following general education requirements: CL and IP.
