The arts are integral to the development of self-expression, innovation and well-being. Through arts experiences, students learn to observe and engage with and shape the world, which provides opportunities for professional preparation and personal growth.


This Bachelor of Arts in Music prepares students who are interested in music-related careers, such as arts management, writing about and reviewing music, or the broad range of activities referred to generally as the "music business." It emphasizes an understanding of music's role in culture, here and around the world. The program allows for a double major or combination with support areas such as business, communication or the humanities.

Alverno has a worldwide reputation for its innovative Ability Based Curriculum, which we infuse with performance assessments and career based core classes. As a music major, you will refine your skills through private study, performance opportunities, and a progression of competences, which include the self-assessment of your own abilities. Student-centered learning, combined with Alverno’s strong Liberal Arts curriculum, produces music graduates who then successfully enter employment within their chosen field.
