About the Creative American Music Program

Bruce Hornsby, BM 1977, and his wife Kathy’s generous gift to the Frost School of Music has endowed a scholarship and set in motion a groundbreaking new songwriting program., The Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program. Unlike a traditional major, the Frost School of Music is pioneering a new educational model by offering a program that will be available to all music undergraduates regardless of major. Most courses will be open to any University of Miami student.  The program is interdisciplinary by nature, with courses from areas such as musicology, theory/composition, performance, media/industry, and jazz.  Music students who complete 18 credits in the program will earn a Minor in Creative American Music.  Among these will be recipients of the Bruce Hornsby Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship, awarded to exceptional juniors or seniors in the program. The Hornsby endowment will also fund annual workshops and master classes by respected BH 121sartists.



“...that which is brought into the present from the past.”
