Music Department

Students who major in music love to listen to, perform, discuss, and create music. Does this sound like you?

At Mount St. Mary’s music majors acquire a broad knowledge of music history, literature, and theory, as well as skill in performance, direction, composition, and analysis.

Our program of study includes a Bachelor of Arts in music (B.A.) with emphases in music performance (keyboard, voice, strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion), music education (single subject high-school certification), music & multi-media, and music history.

The Music Department at Mount St. Mary’s College, Los Angeles offers students:

  • A breadth of musical experience as well as individual attention for students in the studio, in classes, and in varied ensembles, allowing students to reach their fullest potential.
  • A supportive academic and artistic environment where scholarly and creative work is actively produced.
  • A variety of performing venues that offer a fine setting for both instruction and musical presentations.
  • Dedicated faculty who are committed to teaching, including some of Los Angeles’ finest musicians who regularly perform as soloists or as members of chamber and vocal ensembles.
  • Applied studies and ensemble participation for non-majors. A minor in music provides a structured program for students following other major programs.
  • Numerous opportunities to perform as part of an active recital/concert series for both the college and community.
  • Scholarship monies based on merit and potential.

I welcome the opportunity to share with you more of the exciting, unique opportunities available to students who desire to pursue studies in music at the Mount.
