The BYU-Idaho Department of Music offers a full palate of degrees including performance, music education, and liberal arts degrees for students pursuing a variety of career options. We have with highly qualified faculty, including 28 full-time and over 35 adjunct faculty members. We foster a student-centered atmosphere of cooperative and synergistic learning, working together to help each student achieve the highest possible musical standards.  Our exclusively undergraduate focus allows us to offer small class sizes and studios, greater individual attention from faculty, and greater performance and leadership opportunities. Our tuition rates are very affordable and we offer both academic and music scholarships.

We have over 30 ensembles open to majors and non-majors including orchestras, bands, choirs, jazz ensembles and chamber groups.  Our rehearsal and performance facilities are outstanding and impressive, and include the amazing new 15,000 seat BYU-Idaho Center where we frequently invite well-known guest artists to perform with our ensembles. Several of our top ensembles regularly tour, both nationally and internationally, and all performing groups are open to majors and non-majors alike. 

Our music graduates go on to successful careers in music education, performance, and other areas. Additionally, our graduates receive placement in top graduate schools including Eastman School of Music, University of Southern California, Northwestern University, Peabody Conservatory, New England Conservatory, San Francisco Conservatory, and Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, Indiana University, and University of Illinois.

Please contact me, or any of our faculty or staff if you have questions about our programs.  We'd be happy to assist you and your students.
