Opportunities for Non-Music Majors 

Music is for everyone at Carroll University. Whether you want to play or sing in an ensemble, learn guitar, piano, or voice in a classroom setting, take private lessons, or learn about the history of rock, jazz, classical, or electronic music, you'll find what you're looking for!

University Ensembles

Carroll University's performing ensembles are open to everyone regardless of major. In fact, most of our ensembles are primarily composed of non-music majors.
