With graduate and undergraduate degrees in Performance, Composition, Music Education, Music Business, and Music Technology, the School of Music offers a variety of choices for the prospective student. Our student population is dynamic and culturally diverse.

In our School, what you learn inside and outside the classroom empowers you to think, create and act differently. Our talented students become extraordinary musicians, teachers, scholars, and entrepreneurs by developing their minds, their talents and their vision. As an incoming undergraduate or graduate music student, you’ll find the atmosphere abounds with creativity, innovation and inspiration. Our emphasis is on making the most of who you are and what you want to become. Your individual exploration and educational needs are our primary concern.
