The Department of Music is the home of scholars and students who continue a tradition of study stretching back to the ancient world. One of the seven original liberal arts, music maintains a place in the university as a subject of broad and passionate interest to composers, historians, ethnomusicologists, performers, and theorists. At Yale, all of these form a community dedicated to furthering a knowledge and love of music. Using the abundant musical resources at Yale—which include graduate professional schools of Music, Art, and Drama, an Institute for Sacred Music, a renowned collection of historical instruments, and an exceptionally large library of scores, recordings, books, and original manuscripts—the Department of Music provides an extraordinarily rich musical environment unmatched by any other college or university.
