Music Collage

Discover both the science and artistry of music.

Wisconsin Lutheran College's music program focuses on both the science and artistry of this form of communication. By pursuing a major or minor in music, a student will acquire the knowledge and perception essential to excellent musicianship. A student will develop their creative potential by studying the works of both classical and contemporary masters and emulating these models in their own works.

Enhance your music making skills and your knowledge of music.

The program features academic studies in music analysis, literature and repertoire, and in the historical development of music. Additionally, private lessons, master classes and recitals, as well as vocal and instrumental performing groups serve to advance and strengthen the student's skills in making music.
