Mission Statement

As listeners, performers, creators, our students investigate the ways that music and sound shape our creative, social, and physical worlds. The music department’s courses ensembles, and lessons are open to majors and non-majors, and guide students to do the following:

  •   Connect skills, methods, and modes of knowledge across disciplines and apply them to new contexts.
  •   Interrogate our positions within the changing conventions of music and sound studies.
  •   Develop and refine skills in such areas as musicianship, public speaking, and project management.
  •   Build communities in our classes and ensembles through collaborative projects.
