The place for transformational music

  • Be on a campus of innovation. Our ensembles commission and premiere work by new composers, supporting new music and working with under-represented and global professionals. Our music/business program is the first of its kind in our region.
  • In the heart of a musical region, Nazareth offers the Northeast's most complete range of music-related majors, including performance, education, theory, and therapy.
  • All music majors have hour-long, weekly, private lessons with faculty who share your passion and want you to succeed.
  • Enjoy so many opportunities to perform — in ensembles of all sizes and genres, in the wider community and right on campus, including in world-class venues such as our new Glazer Music Performance Center.
