As listeners, performers, creators, our students investigate the ways that music and sound shape the worlds in which we live. The music department’s courses, ensembles, and lessons are open to majors and non-majors, and guide students to do the following:
- Connect skills, methods, and modes of knowledge across disciplines and apply them to new contexts.
- Develop and refine skills in such areas as musicianship, public speaking, and project management.
- Build communities in our classes and ensembles through collaborative projects.
- Interrogate our positions within the changing conventions of music and sound studies.
