Music is at the heart of Piedmont University. More than 200 students—roughly 15 percent of the University’s undergraduate population—participate in music academic programs and ensembles. Students who decide to pursue music as an academic discipline are engaged in high levels of performance as artists and audience members. They receive hands-on and practical learning experiences including use of Piedmont’s 27 Steinway pianos—making Piedmont one of the elite institutions designated as an All-Steinway School.
Whether you are pursuing music performance, music education, or church music, Piedmont students work with world-renowned faculty one-on-one and can pursue a degree that best suits their future music career.
In addition, the University’s new $10.1 million Conservatory of Music provides one of the finest music-instruction facilities in the state. This new facility includes a concert hall with adjustable acoustics, acoustically isolated teaching studios, practice rooms, and a digital music suite.
Piedmont Helps Launch Your Career in Music
Students considering music can count on the faculty within the Conservatory of Music to work with upcoming graduates on applying for and navigating their future pursuits. Many Piedmont alumni move on to graduate music programs around the country, begin their careers as music educators, or may choose to make the transition to the professional world of music.
