<p>Is the Shepard School mostly focused on classical training or is it more comprehensive stylistically? (in particular, Jazz?). Also, how easy is it to major in one subject and minor in music at Rice? What opportunities are there for Theater or Musical Theater as an extracurricular at Rice?</p>
<p>Shepherd is a major conservatory. Its focus is classical. What instrument do you play? You can find out more on the web page. There is no music minor. A non-major can take classes though and participate in some ensembles.
