Welcome to the Amherst College Music Department website. The department offers a full range of courses and performing opportunities for students with previous musical experience and for those coming to the study of music for the first time. 

We strive as a department to support the widest possible range of musical styles in our course offerings and performance activities. We encourage all students interested in making music a part of their lives and their liberal arts education to acquire a strong mastery of the fundamentals of musicianship.
