The study of music encompasses all aspects of instrumental, theoretical, historical, and compositional musical techniques.
Music occupies a unique and prominent position in many cultures around the world. Students in Southern Virginia University’s music program experience a dynamic and varied music concert and performance schedule with numerous concerts each year, including student recitals and ensembles, and are prepared to meet the ever-changing styles of music and shifting of the music industry.
With individualized teaching from professors, students experience a broad range of courses and instruction, including music theory and history, composition, vocal, piano, strings, harp, guitar, woodwinds, and percussion. With an emphasis in foundational music proficiency, students will master sight reading, technique, music history, and literature components for a broad exposure to different music styles.

“Music is always changing and evolving, so we provide our students with a strong understanding of foundational music principles, music history and literature, and exposure to many different kinds of music styles so they can not only find their own personal style, but also grow and thrive with the music trends.”
