The Department of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) which means we are held to national standards for undergraduate credentials. 

We prepare students to teach music at all levels and foster the development of their musical talent. We provide a rich musical experience for all students and contribute to the musical life of the college, community and state.

Our Faculty

Our faculty maintains active performing, teaching, and lecture schedules. They appear regularly throughout the region as clinicians, recitalists, guest conductors, and adjudicators. The voice faculty are members of the National Association for Teachers of Singing, the National Association for Music Education (formerly MENC), the Music Teachers National Association, the College Music Society, and the American Choral Directors Association.
