About Our Music Department

"Music without mysticism is the equivalent of a child's storybook that fails to evoke wonder and awe of distant and imaginary places." 
- Julius Portnoy

In the true spirit of the Liberal Arts where diversity of disciplines studied broadens individual capacities to understand and to feel music studies at Lake Erie College are open to all students, regardless of their previous experience. Whether for simply broadening an understanding of the role of music in human history, or for pursuing music as the primary focus through a concentration within the fine arts major, no students are denied acceptance into the music program! A small department with an academy-like setting allows for abundant, individualized opportunities, curricula and private lessons. The Lake Erie College music program will tailor itself to your strengths, needs and aspirations as you pursue your passion!
