As a music major at Meredith, you’ll develop your creativity through performance, composition, and improvisation. Our nationally-recognized faculty are exceptional teachers and gifted artists. Our well-rounded liberal arts curriculum ensures that you will develop the skills and knowledge you need to succeed after graduation. And we offer a variety of academic and performance opportunities to non-music majors as well.


Music students have opportunities to perform in large and small vocal and instrumental ensembles, opera workshop, and keyboard ensembles. In addition, students have access to a vibrant music community, both in the capital city of Raleigh and in the larger Triangle area. Professional music ensembles nearby include the North Carolina Symphony, North Carolina Opera, Triangle Jazz Alliance, and the North Carolina Master Chorale.
