    Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music

» Welcome to the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music

The William D. Hall and Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Conservatory of Music provides aspiring musicians with a rigorous, professional musical training program, coupled with a supportive liberal arts environment, which enriches the human mind and spirit. This outstanding music curriculum prepares our students to enter a variety of professional fields after graduation or continue their studies in top graduate programs throughout the country.

The Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music offers the Bachelor of Arts in music and pre-professional programs leading to the Bachelor of Music in composition, music education, and performance (conducting, instrumental, and vocal).

Chapman University first offered the Bachelor of Music degree in 1930-31 and has strived to present a thorough music curriculum blended with liberal learning ever since. The university’s music facilities compare with institutions far larger in size and offer a fine setting for both instruction and musical presentations. The Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
