Music at Davidson
The Music Department provides challenging encounters with the multi-faceted perspectives inherent in music with our culturally and stylistically diverse curriculum.
The Music Department is committed to teaching students how to think, create, perform, and communicate, and to do so in a critical, expressive, and articulate manner.
For major and non-major alike, this curriculum provides challenging encounters with the multi-faceted perspectives inherent in the study of music.
Like all majors at Davidson, a major in music prepares the student for a wide variety of career choices. Many of our music majors find it easy to double major in another academic area, due to the flexibility and ability to individually tailor the music major to one’s interests.
Our classes cover a wide span of musical interests including world music, film music, American musical theatre, traditional music of the southern Appalachians, music of Latin America, opera, conducting, digital composition, and more.
The Music Department provides cultural enrichment for the college community through performances, lectures, and master classes. In all of our endeavors, we seek to instill passion for music, music making, and its reception.
