Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University
Welcome to the Setnor School of Music at Syracuse University
Music has thrived at Syracuse University since 1877, when the Department of Music was founded and Syracuse became the first university in the United States to grant a degree in music and require four years’ study in both music and theory. Now known as the Rose, Jules R., and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music, the school continues this proud tradition by offering professional-level training through challenging and relevant degree programs that allow talented musicians and future music industry leaders to excel both collectively and as individuals. We believe all our areas of emphasis are interdependent and integral to the success of the school, the health of the profession, and the evolution of culture.
We recognize that inherent in these endeavors is a responsibility to the campus community, the community beyond campus borders, and our culture as a whole. Hence, we are committed to serving a larger public through outreach and education, working to create an inclusive environment in which all can develop their gifts. https://vpa.syr.edu/academics/music/
