Music

The Music Program at Eastern provides opportunities to explore the history, theory, performance and criticism of music from Western and non-Western traditions. All music majors take a common set of foundation courses while choosing from one of two concentrations: Performance and Musicology: History, Composition and Criticism. In music classes, students engage in critical and analytical thinking, develop written and verbal communication skills, and practice creative expression.

Music students also take advantage of advanced training opportunities tailored to their unique interests and goals, including independent study, internships, senior capstone projects and study tours. The Music Program presents a full season of concerts and recitals featuring students and faculty, as well as performances and lectures by guest artists, which expose students and the community to music of varied styles, eras, practices and global locations.
