Music and Theatre
Dr. Cary Grant
Music is an important part of our proud tradition at Edinboro University. With a marching band, pipe band, voice ensemble, and minor in music, the University provides students with an opportunity to continue to hone their craft in music while pursuing their academic endeavors. The faculty in the Department of Music and Theatre, who are all professional musicians, provide lessons and guidance to students with interest in music performance. We believe in educating the whole person and forming the mind beyond the students discipline; and allowing students to continue to enhance their skills and participate in music ensembles and events allows for a truly formative experience.
The Music Minor allows students to understand music on a deeper level through musical performance and analytical skills. The student may tailor the minor to fit their needs and increase marketability in the current job market. By combining courses in performance, history and general techniques students will be able to acquire specific abilities to help broaden musical knowledge and open doors to understanding the power of this art for years to come.
