Music Department

We currently focus on serving those students seeking to join the rapidly growing field of Music Therapy.  In this major, your clinical skills will grow alongside your capabilities as a musician. 

Our faculty helps you shape your program to match your plans. Music Therapy Clinicals and Internship help you test your growing abilities against professional requirements. A wide range of performance opportunities and visiting artists assure a strong dialog of musical ideas.

Your education outside the music classroom will be every bit as advanced. Our highly regarded ability-based curriculum and liberal arts emphasis will enable you to integrate your music with a broad range of knowledge and know-how. At Alverno, the emphasis is not just on learning, but on learning how to apply your knowledge. What you learn in one classroom fits with what you learn in another.
