Start Your Music Technology Journey

Our students cultivate their musicianship while learning engineering, computing, psychology, and design skills. This helps them envision new ways of creating, performing, and analyzing music. Undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. music technology students work directly with our professors to develop new technologies that redefine how we create, consume, and define music.

As music technologists, we are constantly inspired. Students in the Georgia Tech School of Music programs share a profound love of music and a problem-solving mindset. Our classes help them find the intersections of melody and hardware.
