Music program from Hendrix College is designed for all students. In fact, over 15% of the total student body is involved in the Music Department in some way. Our focus on engaged learning experiences makes music an integral part of Hendrix’s college-wide Odyssey program, the philosophy of which is “You learn more when you do more.”


While at Hendrix College, students may engage in:

  • Performance-based learning opportunities, such as private lessons and ensembles, and
  • Academic studies exploring areas of music history, theory, and relevant topics.

Both learning areas help students develop a comprehensive and nuanced appreciation of music.

Hendrix Music students perform and rehearse in venues including the 800-seat Staples Auditorium, Reves Recital Hall (160 seats), and the beautiful Greene Chapel. The Chapel also houses an exquisite organ, installed in 1997 and enhanced in 2004 by local organ builders Nichols & Simpson. The majority of music classes, lessons, and rehearsals are held in the Trieschmann Fine Arts Building, which houses rehearsal spaces, student practice rooms, teaching studios, and classroom spaces.

The Hendrix College Department of Music is excited to be part of the Creative Quad capital project. Applying the highly successful mixed-use model of The Village at Hendrix, the Creative Quad will combine first-class facilities for the creative arts with new student living space on the upper floors (98 new beds total), energizing the core of the Hendrix campus.

 In addition to a new campus art museum and an auditorium and film screening room, there will be 10 music practice rooms, music faculty offices, and music classroom space with modern technology to enhance our students’ engagement with the many musical opportunities available at Hendrix.
