The School of Music in the College of the Arts is a school of artistry, community, and distinction. Our mission is to provide a vibrant learning environment that encourages individual achievement and artistic expression. Music is key to what makes us human—an expression of our creative beings. We daily and collectively engage our creative humanity as performers, composers, researchers, teachers, and students. Together, we collaborate, inspire, discover, reflect, mentor, innovate, and create. The curriculum provides preparation for careers in music, music education, or further graduate study. We offer a variety of degree programs and concentrations that balance theoretic and applied learning. Artist-teachers offer instruction in all aspects of performance; practicing composers and theorists teach courses in theory and composition; active musicologists provide instruction in history and literature; and specialists in music education teach the courses in that field. Our goal is to develop each student’s musical and intellectual potential to the highest level of individual capability. Our school has been fully and continuously accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music since 1966.
