The Music Department offers instruction for students who wish to study music as one of the liberal arts, as well as for those who are seeking a professional career in musical performance, scholarship or related fields. Students from widely divergent musical backgrounds are encouraged to become involved in the study and practice of the musical arts at Pomona. They may enroll in private instrumental or vocal lessons at beginning or more advanced levels. Courses without prerequisites are designed specifically for students who possess little or no musical background; courses in the major curriculum are of interest to music majors and any other students with musical training and experience. Students may fulfill Area 1 (Creative Expression) of the Breadth of Study Requirements by the study and practice of the musical arts. In order to do so, students must complete the equivalent of one course credit through Music Department offerings. This may be accomplished by enrolling in history, appreciation, ethnomusicology, theory or performance courses. If a student chooses to fulfill this requirement through performance courses, one course credit (four cumulative courses, two half-courses, etc.) must be earned by enrolling either in applied music lessons (individual instruction) or ensemble courses, all of which must be sponsored by the Music Department. For students satisfying the requirement through individual instruction, any combination of MUS 010 PO , MUS 020 PO  or MUS 100 PO  adding up to one credit fulfills the Area 1 requirement, provided that the lessons are all on the same instrument. For students satisfying the requirement through ensembles, two semesters of the same ensemble must be taken in consective semesters.
