Music is a huge part of our history and heritage. You will know you’re home when bagpipes give you goosebumps and you can sing ‘A Flame of White and Crimson’  from memory.

Henry Thoreau wrote that “music is the sound of circulation in nature’s veins.” If you feel the same — that music is part of us, part of what makes life vital, rich and meaningful — then our department will feel like home.

Monmouth is alive with music

Our annual “Christmas at Monmouth” concert, jamming in the stands with our Fighting Scots Marching Band or hearing bagpipes at every event — our campus is alive with music all school year. 

Our students participate in top-notch ensembles, study with experts in their fields and take classes to deepen their knowledge of music. Our music opportunities are open to all students regardless of whether they major in music.

Receive excellent instruction with a great deal of individual attention from our experienced and dynamic faculty. Students can choose between a general music major, a music major with performance emphasis and a music education major that leads to Pre K-12 teacher licensure
