The Music Program at Centre College seeks to provide a meaningful experience with music of high quality for every student at the College. We are committed to:

  1. Enabling students to listen perceptively and communicate clearly about music.
  2. Developing each student’s understanding of the interrelationship of the history, theory, and practice of music.
  3. Increasing and broadening student appreciation of a variety of musical styles.
  4. Enabling students to become more accomplished, creative, and expressive musicians through participation in applied study and performance organizations.
  5. Preparing students with professional aspirations in music for employment and graduate studies in the discipline.
