The Crescendo Living & Learning Community provides a unique opportunity for music majors and minors to reside on a designated residence hall floor with other music students. All music degree programs have a common freshman core, including music theory, ear training, musicology, lessons, solo class, and ensembles.

The opportunity to live with other music students makes it easy to form study groups, help each other with assignments and projects, and walk to and from concerts and events together. In addition to a practice room in your residence hall, there will be a study room on the floor and a tutor available to help you with your academic music classes (i.e., music theory, ear training, and musicology).

Community Requirements

The Crescendo LLC is open to first-year students who have been admitted to the School of Music and are pursuing a major or minor in music. Students will be required to sign up for a section of FYS 101 designated for the Crescendo LLC students in the fall semester.
