As a musician myself, I understand how crucial it can be for a University to offer a path for musicians. I think it is awesome that Gannon University now offers many different opportunities for its musically inclined students. From the concert band to the pep band, there is a place for everyone!

Pursuing Performance at Gannon

Whether you’re into theater or band, Gannon has a place for you! Either way you go, it’s a great way to meet new people and make life-long friends.

When I was in high school, I was part of the marching band for five years. I played three different instruments and became the drum major in my junior year. Marching band was one of the most fulfilling things I ever did in high school, and it is one of the things I miss the most. When I was a part of the Harbor Creek band, I got the chance to go to Disney World twice to march in parades in the parks. Even though many big things happened for me while I was in marching band, it’s the little things I miss the most. For example, cheering in the stands for the football team and playing stand tunes, going to band camp and drinking SO much water, running the same set a bazillion times through… and so many little things just like that. Even though Gannon doesn’t have a marching band, they do have a pep band, concert band, theater department, and mixed chorus.

If you are extremely passionate about music and making it your career, there are options for you when it comes to your major. Gannon has some really cool and unique classes involving music under the category of music theory.

Here are a few:

● Music and Psychology

● Beethoven and his Influence

● Music in Advertising and Marketing

No matter your level of interest in music, Gannon has an option for you so that you can continue to do what you love. The chances are that if you’re pursuing what you love, you’ll meet some cool people who are as well
