Welcome to the Department of Music
Music has been at the heart of Susquehanna since the university was founded more than 150 years ago.
That legacy of excellence attracts high-caliber students and faculty. Here, you'll be challenged to broaden your musical comfort zone, grow as a performer and creative thinker, or train the next generation of musicians.
Prospective students who wish to major or minor in music must audition for music department faculty after applying for admission to the university.
High school students are invited to Wind Ensemble Institute, a week-long summer performance experience at Susquehanna University.
The program provides the surrounding communities with lifelong learning opportunities for professional music study and enrichment activities in an academic environment, including individual lessons in voice, piano, organ, and most band and orchestra instruments, along with group music classes for infants through adults.
The hallmark of the program is the rich collaboration among music faculty, music students, and the children and adults who take lessons and classes.Read More
