Since its founding in 1892 as a music conservatory, the Ithaca College School of Music provides a comprehensive program devoted to excellence in performance and pedagogy. Thirty-nine full-time music performance faculty members and 15 part-time professionals guide music performance majors through a full and rich experience with numerous opportunities to perform in our many ensembles, as well as solo recitals. Music performance majors have one-on-one lessons as well as a repertoire class with the major professor every week. Music performance faculty are active both on and off campus as solo and ensemble performers and as clinicians, and the School of Music brings well-established professionals to campus for master classes and performances.

The undergraduate music performance degree can be completed in four years, or it can be combined with a music education degree and completed in four and one half years.
