The Music Department prepares students for careers in music and music education through serious study of:

  • performance
  • theory
  • music history
  • music literature
  • conducting
  • teaching methods

Music study requires skills in:

  • critical thinking
  • oral perception
  • self-evaluation

Doane offers three music degree programs: general music (often combined with another major), music performance and music education.


Music: The Program

Our music programs allow students to couple a degree in music with another emphasis, such as business or psychology. Students who pursue their music degree in Nebraska from Doane can move into just about anything, from performing professionally to going to medical school.


Music Performance

The Music Performance degree is designed for students who have aspirations to be performers on their chosen instrument.


Music Education

The Music Education degree is for students interested in becoming elementary and secondary school music teachers. This is the largest music degree program at Doane with over 30 majors. Students who are planning to be teachers are encouraged to join the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), the largest professional music organization for teachers in the United States. Membership and the requisite privileges and publications augment classroom work in the field of music education and expand the knowledge and horizons of future music educators.


Get Involved with Music

Whether it's singing in a choir an a cappella group, playing a concert, or marching in a band, Doane College has a plethora of ways you can get involved with music.
