The Department of Music at Adelphi University is firmly committed to the teaching of excellence in all areas of music and music education. The department provides:

  • A strong foundation for future academic and professional development
  • Opportunities for musical and intellectual growth at the highest level, including a wide range of performance and presentation opportunities both at the local and national levels
  • Comprehensive curriculum leading to K-12 Certification for Music Education majors
  • Small class size and individualized learning experiences
  • Cultural enrichment that benefits the University and greater community

Classes provide a foundation in music theory, aural skills, musicianship, and music history. Performance experience is gained and developed through:

  • Instrumental or vocal lessons
  • Participation in large (orchestra, band and chorus) and small (chamber, jazz, opera, guitar, flute, percussion vocal, improvisation and world music) ensembles
  • Participation in performances such as student recitals, ensemble concerts, and Broadway revues

Talent Scholarships

The Department of Music, in cooperation with the Office of Admissions, offers talent scholarships each year to outstanding and deserving entering first-year students who show evidence of unusual ability and potential as musicians.
