The Department of Music offers a stimulating environment in which students can develop their talents. Guided by world-renowned soloists, ensemble musicians, orchestral players, composers, music theorists and historical musicozlogists, our gifted students pursue their passion for creating, presenting and investigating music in a close-knit community of musicians and scholars.
Our department’s experiential learning opportunities provide students with the chance to deepen their understanding of the world beyond the classroom.
Our students incorporate cultural, historical, theoretical and practical study as they explore their career choices. Many of our undergraduate students continue on to master's and doctoral degrees, while others have found success as soloists, composers, accompanists and private instructors. With additional training, students may pursue careers as conductors, music librarians or university professors.
