The Music Department is committed to placing music at the center of the liberal arts experience as an integration of musical practice with scholarship. Our curriculum is built around five core ways of knowing music: through performance, creation, analysis, ethnography, and history. We provide a path for students of any level of musical experience (or none at all) to pursue high-level work as music majors in one or more of these areas. We further aim for all students to find each of these ways of knowing available to them for study, and for music majors to gain experience in each area.
