The Department of Music provides an in-depth course of study for music majors within Notre Dame’s rich liberal arts tradition. Our students engage performance, music theory, music history, and ethnomusicology in collaboration with a professionally accomplished faculty of performers and scholars.

In addition, the Department contributes to the broader musical life on campus through course offerings and abundant ensemble opportunities for majors and non-majors alike. Formal study of music at Notre Dame is complemented by the Department's extensive presentation of faculty and guest artist concerts, scholarly lectures, and student performances.

***COVID-19 poses unique challenges for musicians worldwide. Please be assured that, in addition to adhering closely to all University-wide safety protocols, the Department of Music has taken extra measures to ensure that all music classes, lessons, rehearsals, and performances are conducted as safely as possible. However, the specific measures vary depending on the type of activity. Your teacher can give you information.***

English and music major Veronica Mansour spent last semester workshopping her original musical, An Old Family Recipe, which will be filmed over the course of a few weeks and released to the public in a live-streamed opening night this spring.
