Here we dream big while striving and encouraging our students to accomplish those dreams.

The Music Department at Emory & Henry does a lot of big things that most schools our size don’t have the ability to do — We offer the unique ability to create a highly personalized musical experience for our students no matter what their musical interests are. Our faculty is dedicated to encouraging and driving our students to develop their skills in private applied lessons or in our internationally recognized performing ensembles.

Whether you are interested in attending graduate school in music or beginning a career as a public school music teacher, a major in music at E&H can lead you toward where you want to go.
