Make Music at Linfield

At Linfield, music is an integral part of the cultural life of the college. Our department offers creative opportunities for musicians of all levels and skill sets regardless of major. Students work closely with world-class faculty in classes, lessons, and large ensembles, and perform side-by-side with professional musicians who serve as mentor in our distinctive chamber music program.

Students choosing music as a major specialize in performance, music education, music history and culture, or composition, and complete a capstone project tailored to their individual interests. Access to a music technology lab with high quality equipment used by music and audio recording professionals offer a competitive edge in developing a professional career, and serve as a valuable resource for exploring the continually expanding possibilities of sound.

Make music from day one at Linfield, whether you major, minor or participate in lessons or ensembles while pursuing other majors. FIND YOUR TEMPO with music at Linfield.
