Students study music at St. Bonaventure for a number of reasons. Some students want to be active participants in the music world, as either performers or composers, while others are planning a career in the music industry, perhaps managing a concert venue, performance group, or production company.
Many students choose to study music as a second major or minor, in order to keep it a part of their lives. These students improve their performance skills, enjoy participating in concerts, and learn how music functions in our society.
