DescriptionAcadia's School of Music believes that an undergraduate music program at a liberal arts university should be more of a laboratory for creativity and experimentation than merely a conservatory of past traditions. We strive to create versatile, confident, and well-rounded musicians who are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

The School of Music offers a comprehensive music curriculum where students develop expertise in a chosen area of specialization while being encouraged to broaden their horizons within our many diverse course offerings. The foundational curriculum combines courses in music theory, music history and culture, musicianship skills, keyboard skills, improvisation, composition, intensive ensembles, and one-on-one music lessons with professional teachers. The aim is to graduate well-rounded musicians who can thrive in a variety of professional contexts.
