The Department of Music at Grove City College offers you meaningful opportunities to conduct student research under the guidance of experienced faculty. As a music student, once you have completed all the courses offered in a particular area of study, you may apply to do an Independent Study or Independent Research project with a particular faculty member.
Student research in music has many forms. Students have conducted research and written papers on hearing loss for musicians, auditory processing disorder and how that impacts music study and rehearsal procedures. Additionally, students have worked with experienced composition faculty to write their own works for choir, symphonic orchestra, chamber music, and video game music.
