Department of Music Mission Statement
Our mission is to develop musicians who are aware of the past, engaged in the present, anticipating the future, and capable of leading and making musical contributions in whatever community or walk of life they choose. We offer professional training and promote scholarship among students in the discipline of music, sharing the expertise of our faculty in the training of music educators and performers. We recognize the interdependence among performance studies, music education and the theoretical and historical aspects of musical study, and we strive to instill excellence in each of these areas. We provide leadership for the region, and serve the musical needs of the University, the general college student, campus cultural goals, and the larger surrounding community through ensembles, solo performances and curricular offerings.
