The DePauw University School of Music recently launched the 21st-Century Musician (21CM) Initiative, a complete reimagining of the skills, tools and experiences necessary to create musicians of the future instead of the past—flexible, entrepreneurial musicians who find diverse musical venues and outlets in addition to traditional performance spaces, develop new audiences, and utilize their music innovatively to impact and strengthen communities. Our program is the only required multi-course entrepreneurial music curriculum in the country. With a focus on creating musicians of the future instead of the past, this is an exciting time in the 131-year history of the school.
Salary: Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.
