Pursue your passion for music
Our music department is led by a group of outstanding musician faculty, all ready to offer lessons on any instrument you desire. With small class sizes and tight student-professor ratios, you won’t find yourself sandwiched in an auditorium just listening to a great professor; you’ll get to work one-on-one with them to develop your skills. Flat-rate tuition and free private music lessons mean you can study to your heart’s content—despite the contents of your pockets. ESU gives you the chance to explore and strive towards your highest potential.
Opportunities in Music at ESU
There are a host of ensembles at ESU—bands, choirs, orchestras, jazz ensembles, chamber music, and chamber ensembles, such as flute choir or saxophone quartets. All ensembles are open to both music majors and non-majors alike! You can even take private lessons and perform with the ESU Marching Band.
