Undergraduate students who are not majoring in music programs at Steinhardt can enhance their degree program by adding a music minor. You’ll take 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 participate in ensembles from choral to concert band to jazz.
