Nothing touches the soul quite like music! Whether you want to conduct, perform, or simply enjoy making music by participating in ensembles throughout your time at Erskine, the Music Department offers the tools and expertise to achieve that goal.

Combined with a strong liberal arts curriculum, the Department of Music offers applied study in piano, organ, and voice, as well as in wind, string, and percussion instruments. Erskine’s undergraduate music program prepares students to enter professional study in Performance, Church Music, or Music Education

Many Erskine students studying in other fields enjoy the music minor, which offers either a concentration in a particular performance skill or a general music track

All students, whether they are music majors, minors, or non-majors, are invited to take applied music or audition for ensembles. The music faculty at Erskine College are committed to equipping students with musical skills to be used for a career or a lifetime of enjoyment.
