Building on its foundation as a conservatory of music, the Frost School of Music continues to offer premier performance experiences for instrumentalists and vocalists.
The Frost School of Music, one of two schools established in 1926 when the University of Miami was founded, is one of the largest and best music schools located in a private university in the U.S., and one of the most comprehensive in all of higher education.
The Frost School provides numerous master classes with noted guest artists and composers, and a wide spectrum of degree offerings for virtually every area of musical study and research. Its faculty has pioneered new curricula including the groundbreaking Frost Experiential Music Curriculum, and was the first in the nation to offer professionally accredited bachelors and masters degrees in Music Business and Music Engineering Technology.
The Frost School was also among the first to offer degrees in Studio Music and Jazz, Music Therapy, and Accompanying and Chamber Music and is now the year-round home of the Henry Mancini Institute and the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program.
