Music

What if you could...

What if you could experiment with anything from electronic music to bawdy 16th-century Parisian chansons...

Music is the study of sound as language, and its history, performance and composition


Debut your work with professional musicians
Callie Corro saw her work come full circle: she wrote a clarinet quartet, found musicians,
scheduled rehearsals—and even had the jitters over how her first audience would react.

Careers Made easy

Beat this

Our students have gone on to prestigious graduate performance programs in music. Others are already working performers and composers and conductors. And because Drew offers a really great liberal arts program, some have become physicians and attorneys.

Music faculty insisted on hiring a world-class acoustician when we built our new concert hall. The result is sound that attracts major artists, including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, to perform and record here.

We have so many double majors—music/theatre arts, music/religious studies, music/German, music/neuroscience. Our grads are out succeeding in lots of fields, and still enjoying the music.

My Favorite Course

“There were fewer than seven students in both classes. The professor was absurdly accessible and a lot of fun. It was cool to see everyone enjoy them.”
