Music has been part of the culture at the University of Redlands since its beginnings. When founded in 1907, more than half of the university’s faculty members were professors of Music. Since 1947, we’ve been an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), making us the second oldest member in Southern California. We offer a curriculum that balances classroom study of Western music theory, history and literature with extraordinary individual and ensemble performances. The faculty and facilities of our School of Music are on par with many conservatories.

Our education is made even more meaningful and effective because of our size—small enough to be personal, large enough to offer great breadth in courses and performance opportunities. Plus, Redlands offers music training within a liberal arts and sciences university. So not only do you partake in first-rate music education, you can also take courses from the greater College of Arts and Sciences—courses that will enrich your music training and your life.

The University of Redlands offers two undergraduate degree programs (B.M. and B.A.), and a master’s degree program (M.M.). With these choices you’re sure to find a program and a focus that fit your musical interests and needs.
