Department of Music
The Music Department is one of the University’s most active departments, with many students (both music majors and nonmajors) enrolling in lessons, ensembles, and classes.
At Wittenberg, you will find many opportunities to get involved with music: take lessons, take courses in a variety of areas (music theory, music appreciation, world music, popular music, and much more), perform in a music ensemble or two, or attend concerts in one of our several performance venues. Read why our students chose Wittenberg.
More than $350,000 in music scholarships are awarded annually, available to all students regardless of major. We hope you will audition! Learn more »
Sign up for our Music Audition Workshop! It will be held Thursday, Nov. 20.
The department combines an excellent faculty and first-rate facilities in the midst of a small, residential college. The Music Department has been an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music for more than 80 years.
