Birmingham-Southern College

Birmingham, AL USA

At Birmingham-Southern, you can explore music in ways you never imagined—from making it to understanding its history. From its beginnings as the Birmingham Conservatory of Music in the city's early years, music at Birmingham-Southern College has focused on excellence. It now features an extraordinary faculty of nationally and internationally recognized artists and teachers, including performers, composers, conductors, music historians, and music educators. Equally impressive is our record of student achievement.

We have a shared mission here on the Hilltop: to prepare men and women for lives of significance. Everything the college does is designed to help our students—and everyone in the community—develop, learn, and engage in the wider world. No matter who you are or where you want to go, our faculty and staff are committed to helping you rise to your potential.
