Bachelor of Music
Explore our degree paths in Instrumental Performance, Jazz and American Improvised Music Performance, and Vocal Performance.
From state-of-the-art performance venues to internationally-recognized professors who are innovative musicians, scholars, and composers, the Department of Music at MSU Denver will elevate your musicianship so you can turn your passion into a successful career. Whether you choose to pursue performance, composition, or music education, our diverse curriculum flows through classical, jazz, commercial, and world music to help you navigate the broad range of opportunities that exist for the 21st-century musician.
You’ll enjoy extensive performance opportunities with over 20 different ensembles ranging from choir and orchestra, to big band and mariachi. Our 200+ concerts per year, including our Visiting Artist Series, will inspire and enrich your musical experience.
Music varies from place to place and culture to culture, but we see it as a universal language. We invite you to learn that language, and learn how to share that language, at the most accessible, affordable, and diverse university in Colorado.
Join us December 7-8 for our annual Holiday Card to the City Concert and help us make a difference! We'll be collecting non-perishable and non-expired food items for the Roadrunner Food Pantry to help MSU Denver students in need.
Our goal is to bombard the Food Pantry with donations from our attendees. Look for the Food Pantry table when you arrive. Let's show them what the music community can do!
This year's Holiday Card to the City features the MSU Denver Festival Choir and Symphonic Band, along with performances from Mariachi los Correcamonis de MSU Denver, Gamelan Manik Kusuma, and other student groups. Tickets are available for purchase at the King Center Box Office (303-556-2296) or online.
