Tufts Department of Music is one of the largest and most active departments on the Tufts campus. Through our vast program of classes, private study, and performance, you can explore and experience music in ways you can only begin to imagine. As an undergraduate or graduate, you can study musicology, ethnomusicology, theory, composition, and performance with talented and dedicated faculty. From the Middle East to Java, from the concert halls of Vienna to drumming and dance circles of Ghana, from Renaissance Venice to the modern computer lab, Tufts Music embraces music in forms from many different backgrounds, traditions, and cultures. We invite you to join us and take a course, become a major, or just experience a concert!

From the classrooms, practice rooms, teaching studios, and rehearsal spaces to - most significantly - the acclaimed 300-seat Distler Performance Hall, the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center was designed with exquisite attention to acoustical detail.
