Explore the Department of MUSIC

We strive for excellence in performance, music education and academics within a liberal arts tradition. Our mission is to advance musical culture within the UNH community, among residents of the state and beyond. To that end, you will actively participate in a variety of ensembles: chamber groups that tour the region, choral groups that compete internationally and bands that inspire from the stage to the football field. You will acquire skills of creative expression and innovation, leading to careers as teachers, performers, composers and contributors to the music industry. Equally important, our alumni are cultural leaders in their own communities. The UNH Department of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
