In Perfect Harmony with Your College Experience

Just because you’re away at college doesn’t mean you have to put your passion for music on hold. Arcadia’s Music Minor is the perfect complement to a liberal arts education—whether you’re an experienced musician or just getting started.

A flexible and inviting curriculum welcomes students from across all majors to take some music courses, join one of Arcadia’s music ensembles for course credit … even take up a new instrument (or voice) with a private music lesson. What better way to bring harmony to your college experience!

Students do NOT have to minor in music to participate in music courses.
