Music at Muhlenberg College
The goal of the Music Department is to develop skilled and knowledgeable musicians who think creatively. Our curriculum is designed to provide students with a broad and comprehensive background in music and the opportunity to pursue their own musical interests in greater depth. The development of technical and interpretive skills is informed by a liberal arts approach. We teach creative musicians to analyze evidence, integrate knowledge from diverse fields, make judgments, and create new knowledge. We are also committed to teaching students to communicate effectively, reflect thoughtfully on their own work, and show respect for others. These abilities prepare our students for lives as musicians, creative thinkers, and responsible members of society.
