The Music Department is made up of 25 permanent faculty whose expertise ranges from sound studies to chant, Schubert to Schenker, the musics of South Asia and Ethiopia to contemporary improvisation, Global Pop, Musical Theater, and jazz. Forty to sixty undergraduate concentrators and 70 graduate students with equally wide-ranging interests comprise our student population. Visiting scholars and fellows, student musicians, and artists-in-residence round out the department's academic and performing community.
