Overview

Each semester more than 400 students take academic music classes, more than 300 perform in ensembles, and more than 700 take applied lessons. Thus in any given semester, some 1,400 students at the College (almost 25 percent of the student body) are actively engaged with the Department of Music.

Our curriculum includes a wide variety of academic courses (from seminars to lectures and from classes devoted to a particular topic to broad historical or topical surveys), numerous performing ensembles, and private lesson instruction (in individual and group lesson format). Most of our lower-level courses do not assume previous musical experience or the ability to read music. Among the academic courses are classes in music theory, orchestration, and conducting. Historical and ethnographic surveys are offered in world music, western music, American music, popular music, jazz, and electro-acoustic music. Freshman seminars and upper-level courses cover topics in more detail.
