MUSIC

OUR PROGRAM HITS ALL THE RIGHT NOTES

By teaching music as a liberal art, the department appeals to an ancient tradition that places music among the most important disciplines for forming the intellect. To this end, our program pursues the acquisition of practical skills along with a rigorous intellectual formation in musical thought.

Skills You will Gain

1. Performance. Our facilities have marvelous acoustics, offering a unique setting to grow as a vocal or instrumental musician.

2. Theory. Whether or not you focus on composition, a working knowledge of music theory develops your ear for sound and strengthens your performing ability.

3. History. With a solid foundation in the traditions of Sacred and secular music, you can carry on those traditions with a style uniquely your own.
