The Music Department is one of the University’s most active departments, with many students (both music majors and nonmajors) enrolling in lessons, ensembles, and classes.
The department combines an excellent faculty and first-rate facilities in the midst of a small, residential college. The Music Department has been an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music for more than 75 years.
