Department of Music

Bring your musical talent to Alabama State University and prepare for a career as a teacher or professional musician. Our undergraduate degree in music offers concentrations in education and performance.

Your time at ASU starts with an audition and diagnostic exam that tell us about your ability and proficiency. It continues with a program of study that mixes traditional classes, like music theory, history, and aural skills, with private voice or instrument lessons. And it’s bolstered by opportunities to perform with our large ensembles, like band and choir. Faculty, guest artist, and student recitals, along with the opportuniy to attend local and regional performances will enhance your musical experience.
