Music Minors

Strengthen your performance skills


Minor in Music

  • Designed for students majoring in fields other than music who are interested in further developing their performance skills on an instrument or voice.
  • Courses, in addition to private lessons, are designed to reinforce the overall musical background of the student.
  • The Minor in Music is not intended as professional preparation for a career in music, but for personal enrichment.
  • Admission to the program is offered by audition to students with a strong musical background.
  • Music Minors take required and elective music courses and receive many of the same benefits as music majors, including private instruction and opportunities for positions in Millersville University’s top performing ensembles.
