Music Education

Students prepare for careers in music education, music performance, composition, the music industry, arts administration, marketing, and college teaching when pursuing a major in Music at Westminster College. The school provides professional-level training under the Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts, or Bachelor of Science degrees. There are multiple venues on campus for music performance, including the Will W. Orr Auditorium, Wallace Memorial Chapel, and Berlin Lounge, and student recitals are presented frequently throughout the academic year. Those interested have the opportunity to join the marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, orchestra, concert choir, chamber singers, women’s and men’s choruses, opera workshop, jazz ensemble, and numerous chamber ensembles. Students can participate in the Music Intern Teaching Program where, with faculty guidance, they give music lessons to community children and adults. Westminster students have attended graduate school at leading institutions.
