Belmont University Middle TN  
Berry College TN, GA and AL The music department at Berry College is on the leading edge of our field. Beginning next fall, we will have the nation's only 5-year B.M.--M.B.A. degree program. In only 5 years a music major can get a Bachelor of Music degree with a Business minor (that focuses on building entrepreneurial skills both within and outside of music) AND a Master in Business Administration. This degree program is a game-changer for job security and preparation for aspiring professional musicians.

We are also home of the unique Versatile Strings program (set to begin next fall) that gives string players the opportunity to receive instruction in classical performance, improvisation, and alternative styles as well as experience and instruction for our college string students in Suzuki Violin and Viola pedagogy within the new Community Music School. String students in the Music Business/ Entrepreneurship program will also assist in operating the Community Music School.

Strong academic and music scholarships are available. Our website will be updated to reflect these changes in the coming weeks. Feel free to share this post to spread the word and to contact me for more information about our unique programs in the music department.
