You should major in music:

  • If you’ve loved your experiences in band, orchestra, choir, or music production.
  • If you appreciate a broad range of musical styles, from classical to pop, jazz to zydeco.
  • If you’re eager to get on stage, perform, and learn the inner workings of the music industry.
