Overview

College music programs do more than just feed the soul. They enrich the culture of the University, provide service and a meaningful bridge to the surrounding community and offer virtually limitless opportunities for rewarding careers in music performance, music education, music technology, composition and more.

Why Manchester?

At Manchester University, we strive to go a step beyond. And that’s especially true in our music curriculum.

An accomplished and dedicated faculty embraces the MU ideal of the whole student -- breadth outside of music as well as within it -- and believes passionately that music can change people’s lives. It’s why the music program offers so many ways for students who aren’t music majors but wish to participate in MU’s outstanding program nonetheless.

For those who do pursue a music degree, however, Manchester offers a full range of opportunities in the field. Students are taught to understand and appreciate Western art music through a balance of academic and performance areas of music. In addition, they are also exposed to the diversity of musical expression through course offerings in world musics and jazz.

A Manchester University Music degree, whether in performance, general concentration or theory-composition concentration, expertly trains students as performers, teachers and advisors, and stresses fundamental skills and understanding in solo and ensemble performance, music education, history and analysis, theory, and conducting.
