Music Minor

Undergraduate students who are not already majoring in music at Steinhardt can complete a music minor in Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts. The music minor consists of eight core courses – two courses each in Music Theory, Music History, Aural Comprehension, and Keyboard Skills – as well as other music academic courses and private lessons and participation in ensembles.

However, Steinhardt does not offer program-specific minors. Consequently, we do not offer a minor in music performance, music composition, music business, music technology, or music education.

Please feel free to contact our department’s coordinator of the music minor, Dr. Paul Horan at or 212 998 5771.
