The courses offered by the Music Department provide opportunities for students to gain skills and awareness and to develop a sensitivity of the aesthetic values of music.
Membership in any vocal or instrumental organization gives students the opportunity to learn through performance. In musicology courses, the students are provided with an in-depth study of the elements of music (harmony, form, ear training).
For all performing instrumental and vocal music classes there will be auditions for selection into the appropriate music ensemble. Auditions are in the Spring for the coming year. See the director's websites for more information.
