Dedicated to providing a robust and rigorous approach to the field of musical study and performance, the Southwestern Music Department combines serious musical education with the depth and richness of a traditional liberal arts curriculum.

Whether it’s the chance to perform solo or in an ensemble, the exploration of music theory, the study of ancient or modern musical forms, or teaching students of all ages in the classroom, the Southwestern University Department of Music strives to provide the widest possible range of musical opportunities for students.
