The Music Program at Ramapo College, with its distinctly contemporary orientation, emphasizes creativity and experiential learning in an interdisciplinary and multicultural framework. The program focuses on many forms of contemporary music and digital-music technologies, while cultivating an appreciation for American music, Western art music, and musical traditions from around the world. The major begins with foundational studies in three areas: musicianship, music history and culture, and musical technologies and media. Students select one of four concentrations – Music Studies, Music Performance, Music Production, or Music Industry – all of which offer opportunities for internships, independent projects, and performance. These flexible and interconnected concentrations allow students to develop their interests, talents, and skills in individual ways.
- · Music Studies includes the more interpretive disciplines of music, the craft of writing about music, and preparation for graduate studies.
- · Music Performance is particularly experiential in developing musical skills and communication, and also provides a foundation for students seeking to pursue K-12 teaching.
- · Music Production develops skills in original composition, production and recording techniques, scoring for visual media, and electronic performance.
- · Music Industry focuses on the rapidly changing dynamics of the music business and the relationship of music, business, and technology in the digital media landscape.
