Minor in Music

The music minor only studies classical music - it does not include any commercial music courses. The music minor only takes four semesters to complete. An audition is required in order to pursue a music minor. Students interested in auditioning for a music minor may audition by DVD or in person on an audition date prior to enrolling, or audition during the first semester enrolled at Belmont.

Classes for the music minor must be started by the beginning of the sophomore year.
