Welcome to the David L. Walters Department of Music at Jacksonville State University. The students, faculty and staff send you warm greetings and hope that you find the information on these pages interesting and informative.
A diverse and inspiring faculty trained at some of the nation's premier institutions are active as performers, scholars, composers, and teachers. Students have rare opportunities to work closely with and learn from these artist-teachers individually and in a wide variety of ensemble, seminar, and classroom settings. An energetic student body is fully engaged in a wide variety of musical performance and learning activities, and all gain significant experience by playing key leadership roles within them.
If you want to become part of this dynamic venture in music, we urge you to consider JSU as part of your educational plans for the future. Join us. "JSU Music: A Proud Tradition in Sound Education."
