Serious about music … serious about the liberal arts        Our department of music seeks to distinguish itself among liberal arts college music departments in the United States. Our curriculum is modeled on the best features of a music conservatory, but we are small enough to offer personal attention.   Lesson fees are waived, thanks to the generosity of the Jack Niblack ’98 Music Lessons Fund.
