Develop your musical gifts while receiving formal training in music theory, history, and technology. Our Music major, paired with Taylor’s broad liberal arts education, will prepare you for a multidisciplinary career in music areas such as musical performance, aesthetic concept planning, business and technology, and the history and tradition of the arts.
The foundational Music curriculum balances theoretical knowledge and applied learning in the classroom. In history and music theory courses, Music majors study the genres, styles, principles, and lives of influential composers to discover how music can impact society and culture. In hands-on classes, students will refine their instrumental gifts under the one-on-one tutelage of professional musicians who share their specialties; develop composing, aural, and keyboard skills; and learn to apply the principles of part writing, melodic phrase analysis, and harmonic progression in music labs
Music professors will encourage and advise students as they join instrumental and choral ensembles, build individual repertoires, and perform in recitals and concerts.
