The Major in Music at Hamline University prepares students for the diversity of today’s music employment opportunities. Whether you join us as a digital musician or acoustic musician you will get hands-on experience with audio technology, engage in collaborative work, grasp the nitty-gritty of the business and of course develop your individual musical skills and creativity. The distinctive Creative Collaborations courses will provide an introduction to the concerns, processes and technologies of professional collaborative arts productions in music, theater, and video/film. Interact with the rich and diverse arts community in the Twin Cities with our inside track placements for internships. Find your “people” in performing groups – from our combos, bands and studio ensembles to choirs and orchestra. The multiplicity of skills in the major prepares you to be a flexible and informed artist and opens the door to contemporary performing arts/music careers and allied professions.
