The music faculty at Union College serves the diverse needs of students pursuing a Liberal Arts education. We seek to open the minds and ears of Union students by teaching an integrated curriculum which includes courses in music theory, music history, jazz, and world music. Students from across the campus experience music through performance workshops, participation in faculty-led ensembles, and private vocal and instrumental instruction. While most of our courses are open to the general student body, we delight in one-on-one interaction with our music majors in various independent study courses and senior projects. We continue to be active in our own fields of performance, composition and research in the belief that our own professional interests keep our classroom and concert hall activities lively and inspiring.
