The College’s music program emphasizes the training of future music educators, though students can also earn degrees in performance, music marketing and community music/studio teaching. An endorsement in elementary music is also available.

Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of performance groups including Concert Band, Pep Band, Hoyt Street Jazz Ensemble, Concert Chorale, Women’s Choir and Contemporary Vocal Ensemble.

In addition to regular concerts on campus, Peru State’s bands and choirs make annual tours to area high schools. Students do not have to be music majors to participate in any of the instrumental or vocal ensembles.

Private lessons are available in voice, piano, brass, woodwind and percussion instruments.
