Department of Music

If your passion is performance or composition, whether you want to be a choral or instrumental music teacher, or if you seek a firm foundation for a career outside of music, we have a program that will help you realize your aspirations, regardless of your chosen path.

We offer professional instruction on all woodwind, brass, percussion and string instruments as well as piano, harpsichord and organ — in addition to voice, composition, improvisation and conducting.

Through a rich learning environment our students grow into talented and respected artists, dedicated scholars, and global citizens.

Christopher Newport is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
