Music programs

As a music major, you’ll study both historic and modern traditions and perform a variety of Western and non-Western music. We pursue excellence in the study, practice and performance of each piece of music, so you’ll be challenged and encouraged by your professors, peers and private tutors as you scale new heights with your musical ability and artistry.
