Young Harris College has a long tradition of musical excellence. The Music Department provides thorough, professional music studies through an immersive four-year curriculum. Our student body is small and our student-teacher ratio is low, which means our students receive personal attention, frequent encouragement and extra assistance with regard to their professional training. Classes are taught by an outstanding array of highly motivated and caring faculty members who are specialists in undergraduate music instruction.
Music students at Young Harris College are given excellent performance and leadership opportunities. Our students perform in recitals, are soloists in the College's many choral and instrumental ensembles, and star as the leads in musical theatre productions. Each season, the Division of Fine Arts offers an exciting lineup of world-class performances and events presented by the Department of Music. The current music season showcases the creative efforts and talents of YHC students, YHC faculty and a variety of distinguished guest artists.
The Music Department offers competitive scholarships to students whose concentration is music. In addition, band and choral scholarships are available to students whose concentration is not music.
Young Harris College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
