Minor in Music

Don’t miss a beat.

Music may be a personal passion you would like to advance, a key component to your career goals, or perhaps it’s simply something you wish you knew more about. Regardless, the minor in music can enhance any major.

The William Woods University music minor covers history, aesthetics and performance of music. Coursework includes piano, voice, music fundamentals, and the exploration of jazz, pop and rock.

Students may expand their work in great opportunities like the Jameson singers vocal ensemble, our student-led, faculty-sponsored pep band, or sing it out on stage in our annual musical. Faculty have experience with a variety of musical instruments and can offer continued lessons in some of those instruments as well as voice and piano.
