About the Department of Music


Studying Music at Dal means working with accomplished faculty and playing alongside Symphony Nova Scotia musicians. And while you'll be part of of a large urban campus with more than 3,600 courses, you'll enjoy the supportive environment and personalized attention of a small department.
