Program Description

Students majoring in music at Tennessee Wesleyan have extensive training and opportunities to both develop their musical craft, and prepare to use that music in their career.


Music majors study voice or keyboard instruments, and combine those studies with music theory and music history to shape their understanding of music and theory. Combine classroom experience with multiple hands-on experiences such as concert choir, TWU chorale, chamber ensemble, TWU band, and more, for a focused, yet well-rounded music degree.


Music education majors will concentrate on studying music in the context of classroom settings through specific tailored content as applied to current education standards, working toward K-12 certification.
