    As a music major, you’ll study the history of music, music theory and composition in addition to practicing playing an instrument for performance. Beyond Bach and Beethoven, you’ll study non-Western music, as well as the folk and blues tradition in North America. In addition to regular classes like music history, music theory and composition, you’ll spend time practicing solo and attending rehearsals to practice with a group.
