Strong minds make strong musicians and are better equipped to spread the joy of music to others. As a music major or minor at Illinois College, your focus will be on developing your musical abilities as a whole - from theoretical and historical to practical and hands-on. Music students are held to a high academic standard and scholarship plays a primary role in all music classes.
