The School of Music offers a full range of bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music, including performance (brass, percussion, piano, strings, voice, and woodwinds), composition, music education, music theory, and music history at the undergraduate level, and all of those areas plus conducting, collaborative piano, and piano pedagogy at the master’s level. We are also the only Missouri institution to offer the Ph.D. in music education. Our extensive ensemble offerings are complemented by a highly individualized approach to student success, centered on the studio lesson in most areas of study. Non-music majors, we are here for you too. We offer the minor in music and, starting this year, a specialized jazz minor, and of course hundreds of non-majors participate in our ensembles—everything from Marching Mizzou to chamber groups—and music courses.
