Music Is Life at Millikin
The mission of the School of Music is to develop the whole musician – artistically, intellectually, technically – through the integration of theory and practice in an environment in which students become active learners through contact with a faculty who themselves continue to grow as artists, scholars, and teachers.
Music core learning goals
- Develop musical skills through listening, analysis, playing an instrument, or voice
- Develop an understanding of music in an historical and cultural context
Each degree program has its own learning goals for the major, too. These goals help us maintain a steadfast commitment to what's important - preparing musicians for lives of distinction and honor.
