Small classes provide an intimate learning experience, and students benefit from one-on-one instruction and state-of-the-art technology. It’s no surprise, then, that Transylvania music majors fare extremely well in graduate programs and in the job market.
If you plan to actively participate in our music program regardless of major, you can audition for a four-year music scholarship.
Transylvania’s unique four-week May term provides an ideal time for choir and concert band tours as well as travel courses to Austria, New York City and other destinations. The best part—you’ll receive course credit.
Transylvania gives private lessons in voice and all standard band and orchestra instruments to students, regardless of major. Unlike at other institutions, these lessons are offered free of charge to music majors and minors.
The music minor is one of the most popular on campus. Like other minors, it may be compatible with any major emphasis. Students from all Transylvania disciplines pursue the music minor as a rewarding way to heighten performance and analytical skills, participate in musical activities, and continue their previous experiences with ensembles and music lessons.
Transylvania offers students many opportunities to showcase their talents. You don’t have to be a music major to join an ensemble, either.
