BA Contemporary Music

Let our passion guide you: become a performer, composer, producer, technologist, or musical entrepreneur

Creative careers in the musical world are more and more relevant every day, and we work hard to make sure that you’re prepared for what the working world wants from you. Our contemporary music program offers an emphasis in Global Practices or Audio Engineering and Music Production.

Not only will you foster skills in performance, technology, composition, and recording arts, you’ll also find yourself grounded in world music, theory, and history. Our full-time and contributing faculty members are practicing professional musicians, so you’ll be taught by your future peers – and our guest artists from all over the world will show you a diverse world of opportunities for musicians available today. Get ready for performances, workshops, seminars, and master classes, plus ensembles, where you’ll be playing non-stop. We also offer private lessons in all orchestral instruments and many world music instruments, plus lessons in piano, guitar, composition, songwriting, and music technology.
