Music

Music is an integral part of a liberal arts education and vital to campus life at W&J. Our academic courses challenge students from all majors to think, speak, and write effectively about music. Our performance ensembles include choral, jazz, wind and chamber, and our program of instrumental and vocal instruction offers students private lessons with exceptional performers drawn from across the region. Students typically find that the skills emphasized in music (such as creativity, listening, and collaboration) are transferable to most disciplines and professions.

Students can personalize and focus their studies with emphases in literature and theory, media and performance. Learn more in the W&J Course Catalog.
