Music minor is designed to provide interested students with a foundation in the language and history of music as well as experience in a performing ensemble. The minor will allow you to use your creative talents effectively while pursuing other areas of study at St. John’s. It can be tailored to your individual musical abilities, and we encourage you to take a Music Theory Placement Test in order to determine which level is most appropriate for you.
