Students are the very core of everything we do. Our mission is to teach the next generation of performers, music educators, music therapists, music scholars, and non-majors who will have a life-long involvement with music. Every year we meet students from diverse backgrounds with new and interesting stories and experiences, and we want to share as many as we can.
