Music

Major, Minor

Immerse yourself in a rigorous bachelor’s degree program (or minor) to become a skillful musical performer, scholar or educator.

Gain a solid academic foundation built upon studies in music theory and analysis, music history and performance opportunities in both classical and jazz idioms. Receive individualized performance instruction with faculty members and adjunct instructors. Perform in a wide range of ensembles and enjoy award-winning facilities — including a 400-seat recital hall, a piano lab with Kawai electronic units, a Mac-based MIDI lab, practice rooms with pianos, a percussion studio and rehearsal space that replicates the recital hall. Travel with performance groups to major cities in the U.S. and abroad and apply for music scholarships that are available to all students, not just music majors or minors.
