At Carroll College, course offerings in music aim to serve students on two levels: 1) to allow those students who have had prior background in music to continue their development, and 2) to provide an initial experience in music to those students who have not previously had the opportunity or desire to study music.
The focus of the Minor in Music is on acquiring skills and knowledge in a concentrated area of study to complement the student's major and to enhance liberal arts education. For students desiring to study or participate in music without the minor, a variety of courses and opportunities are available, including music appreciation, class voice, group piano, composition, sight singing, two choirs, jazz band, and pep band.

Our goal is to give students a greater appreciation for music as an art form and a vehicle for self-expression. We provide quality instruction to challenge and enrich all students through music studies.
