The department of Music, composed of nine full-time faculty and several adjunct faculty, offers majors in Music, Music Performance, Music Education, Music in Business and Musical Theatre. Minors are offered in Music, Audio Production and Arts Administration. The department’s mission is to develop professional musical competencies, as well as a deep appreciation of music, that students can later utilize in music careers or a life-long enjoyment of the art. All students in the music program should gain a broad knowledge and appreciation of important music within historical, cultural, and global contexts; achieve proficiency in aural, reading, and keyboard skills; learn music theory and apply that learning to critical analysis and musical creation; and develop expertise as solo and ensemble performers. The Department strives to foster a community of musicians who care about music for the aesthetic and affective richness that it brings to the world, and conversely, who value their knowledge of the world and its relationship to music.
