Minor in Music

The Minor in Music program is open to all non-Hartt students who wish to broaden their experience in music in a formal program. Applicants must have a rudimentary understanding of music and an area of performance experience (instrument or voice). 

To complete the minor in music, the student must register for a letter grade for all courses and must receive a grade no lower than a C in each course.


  1. Meet with Hartt's Academic Evaluator to determine the requirements for course selections, examinations, interviews, and auditions.
  2. Take the audition for placement in a performing organization (choir, band, orchestra), if such course electives are chosen. Take the audition for acceptance and placement in private music instruction, if such elective lessons are chosen. 
  3. When officially accepted into the minor, the University's "Change of Curriculum Status" form must be completed to add the minor. This form requires the signatures of the primary academic advisor and dean (University major), as well as Hartt's Academic Advisor and Evaluator.

Note: The Minor in Music with applied lessons incurs an additional charge of $2,050.00 which covers one hour of weekly private instruction across the 14-week semester.
