PianoThe College of Southern Idaho Music Department offers a general Associate of Arts Degrees in Music as well as coursework in Music Appreciation, Music Theory, Jazz, and Aural Skills, along with instruction in a wide-variety of musical instruments. Performance opportunities abound in the Music Department. Chamber Choir, Madrigal Ensemble and Magic Valley Chorale are among the performing groups for vocalists. For instrumentalists, CSI provides the Symphonic Band, Pep Band, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and Magic Valley Symphony. Student and faculty concerts allow for solo performances as well. In addition to group instruction, private vocal and instrumental lessons are available.

The members of the Music Department faculty are dedicated to helping students prepare for careers in performing, teaching, and other music-related areas. While the members of the CSI Music faculty are active performers, their first priority is teaching. This means that their students come first. The emphasis is not on making students "sink or swim," but rather to do their best to see that every student enjoys success in his or her endeavors.
