The mission of the Music Department is to foster in our students a passion for the lifelong pursuit of creative, intellectual, and musical development by instilling in them a commitment to artistic and personal excellence; exposing them to theoretical concepts within an historical context; and providing them opportunities to apply those concepts in a variety of settings. Our goals for every music student are to develop technical facility, musicality and professionalism in solo and ensemble performance; to develop the ability to read and realize music notation; to become familiar with a wide selection of musical literature; and to communicate effectively and appropriately about written or performed music.
The music department provides applied instruction, classes, and ensembles for students enrolled in the three music degree programs and for interested students throughout the college. The Bachelor of Arts degree option is designed for those students whose wish is to be broadly educated in the liberal arts and in music. The Bachelor of Arts in Music Education prepares students for licensure in public school music K-12 and for further study at the graduate level. The Bachelor of Music in Performance degree provides intensive study in music for talented students preparing for professional careers. While all prospective students must pass an audition/interview for acceptance into the music program as majors, the foundation requirements in the first-year curriculum make no distinction among the principal programs (B.A. in Music, B.A. in Music Education, or Bachelor of Music in Performance). The Department of Music at Brevard College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
