There’s a lot to be curious about as a music student. In fact, almost every musical concept can be taught from multiple angles including performance, theory, and history. We know the most rewarding music classes I took at college frequently shifted between these different musical perspectives. As the Northville High School Band's members contemplate what to do with their love for music, they should hear about degree programs that teach music from several approaches.

Our team at TheBestColleges.org is here to help with our new guide to the most innovative college music programs. We’ve highlighted programs that shape their curriculums according to modern trends in music and technology, and also include scholarly music subjects like music history and jazz studies.
