InTuneFor the fifth consecutive year, Catawba College is named one of the nation's Best Music Schools by In Tune magazine. Catawba was one of only 51 institutions included in the magazine's listing of The Best Music Schools of 2013.

Catawba offers a bachelor's degree in Music with concentrations in Music Business, Music Education, Music Performance, Popular Music and Sacred Music, and offers a bachelor's degree in Musical Theatre.

In Tune's Best Music Schools for 2013 special feature was included in the October 2012 edition of the magazine. The publication is a classroom InTunemagazine for music students, grades 7-12. In Tune was founded in 2003 by veteran Billboard, Forbes and Business Week publishing executive Irwin Kornfeld, former Musician, EQ and Gig magazines publisher Angelo Biasi, and Grammy-winning music producer Will Edwards.

In the aforementioned special feature, Catawba Music Department Chair, Dr. David Fish, spoke about the college's popular music ensemble Vernaculars Prime performing at the Hard Rock Café in New York City. "Performing the Beatles' Abbey Road album at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square gave Catawba's popular music students a great opportunity to apply classroom learning at a professional venue known around the world," Fish said.
