Welcome to Music at Nicholls

Anderson soloWelcome to the Department of Music at Nicholls! This is an exciting time for our department. In Fall 2017, we welcomed the largest freshman class of music majors ever at Nicholls. In May 2018, the Nicholls Concert Choir performed in Carnegie Hall in New York.  A complete renovation to the beautiful Mary and Al Danos Theater was finished in 2016. Finally, in Fall 2018 we welcomed four new music faculty to campus and we cannot be more excited about our future.  Please explore these pages to find out more about us.

Whether you are a music major, minor, or just interested in exploring your musical talents, Nicholls has something for you. We offer courses and performance experiences that fulfill the requirements of the Bachelor of Arts degree with possible concentrations in instrumental or vocal studies leading to a certification in teaching music.

At Nicholls, you will find a warm and friendly atmosphere among the skilled and experienced faculty. If you have any questions or would like to visit the campus, please feel free to contact me at shane.anderson@nicholls.edu.
