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.
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.
Whether you are pursuing music performance, music education, or church music, Piedmont students work with world-renowned faculty and can pursue a degree that best suits their future music career.
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.
