McNally Smith College of Music

Music Performance

Whether you sing or play bass, guitar, drums, keyboard, strings, brass or woodwinds, the Music Performance programs at McNally Smith will help you grow as an artist, performer and professional musician. Class sizes are kept small so that you receive the kind of attention and feedback you need to develop musically.

Your instructors are world-class players who bring industry experience to the classroom to help prepare you for making a life in music. Your peers are fellow musicians and collaborators to work with and learn from who are as committed to the music as you are.

And with over 40 different ensembles to choose from, you’ll be able to tap into a world of musical diversity and a wealth of playing opportunities that exist on campus and in the surrounding Minneapolis-St. Paul music scene.
