Music Department

We provide strong academic studies and varied creative experiences so that you can inspire others with your music as a performer or composer, or encourage others to make music of their own as a teacher.

Your career in music begins with an education that hits all the right notes. Whether you’re interested in becoming a musician or in music education, our music program will provide you with the knowledge and technical skills to succeed on stage, in the studio or in the classroom.

Our music program allows for small class sizes, and provides a foundation in music theory, aural skills, musicianship and music history. In addition to the knowledge you’ll gain in the classroom, you’ll also gain valuable experience through instrumental or vocal lessons and performance opportunities, including large and small ensembles—band, chorus, orchestra, chamber, guitar, jazz, opera and world music among others.
