Music is one of the most ancient and universal of the liberal arts, and the study of music is as varied as the types of music that exist throughout the world. Here at Clarke University, we possess a thriving fine arts community, and we believe one-on-one learning is the ratio for future scholars and laureates. On campus and beyond, Clarke’s music program harmoniously creates, expresses and inspires greatness.
