The NMU Department of Music prepares music majors for professional careers in music. The department also provides instruction in music for minors and non-majors, and musical performances by students and faculty. By these means, the department provides artistic and cultural enrichment for the university and the surrounding community.

The Department of Music is NMU’s resource for those seeking a comprehensive music education and for all who wish to enrich their lives through involvement in, and enjoyment of, music. Its academic purpose is to advance the university mission by providing undergraduate programs for professional training in music, studies in music as a liberal art, and opportunities for the general university student in applied study, music courses, and ensemble performance. On a broader level it exists to enrich the present culture, preserve artistic heritage, and facilitate the emergence of new creative expressions.

The department offers three undergraduate degrees—Bachelor of Music Education (Vocal or Instrumental), Bachelor of Science/Music Major, and Bachelor of Arts/Music Major. Non-majors may also pursue a 20-credit music minor. The department provides opportunities for music instruction and performance to all students and general public. Lessons, classes, and ensembles are open to non-majors with no additional fees. A schedule of ensemble concerts, student and faculty recitals, guest artist performances, and educational events is offered each semester wit
