The music department is a community that values and cultivates the creation, performance, and critical study of the world's music.
Students majoring in music develop an integrated understanding of music in performance, creative work, and as cultural and historical expression.
Through its curriculum, concerts and recitals, master classes, guest lectures, residencies, and other public events, the music department leads the discourse that enriches College and community life.
Students study, practice, and perform in Booth Hall, Herrick Chapel, and Thorne Hall, with access to practice rooms, large and small performance venues, a well-equipped electronic music studio, and an outstanding music library.
NEWS: We welcome our newest applied music instructor, Dr. Hye-Won Cho, to the piano faculty, where she joins Galina Barskaya and Dr. Junko Ueno Garrett. Dr. Cho's DMA in piano performance is from UCLA, and her B.Mus. and M.Mus. are both from the Juilliard School. A highly accomplished soloist and chamber artist, she is also the recipient of the Grand Prize in the 2008 Los Angeles Liszt International Competition. We look forward to many years of music-making with Dr. Cho and her Occidental College students.
