The study of music is a noble, although often difficult, path. Music is not always “fun,” but it can be deeply fulfilling in a way that few other things in life can compare. Our work as musicians has the potential to change us and those who hear us. Our work has the potential to inform our views of life, love, happiness, grief, loss - the entire human condition. The responsibility is great, yet the reward may be even greater.
The Department of Music Faculty and Staff are thrilled that you have joined us on this path. Our outstanding program, as detailed in the following pages, will provide you with a framework upon which you will be able to build your music foundation. Study hard, practice hard, play hard - work hard. We are here to help and guide you on your journey.
