The Department of Music at Kenyon aims to increase a student's sense of the richness and importance of music in the human experience.
Learning how to listen to and study music can expand and enrich students' interior lives; making music individually can enhance their own creativity; and making music together touches the communal aspects of life. Students learn to synthesize information, to think critically, to formulate and communicate ideas (written, verbal and musical), to use quantitative skills and analyze data, to coordinate musical thought, emotion and physical movement, and to work creatively.
