We provide students with the knowledge and skills to become professional musicians – performers, educators, scholars and lifelong learners. Our students are supported by more than $140,000 in scholarships each year. We offer students opportunities for musical development, leadership growth and personal enrichment through mentored performances, classroom study, individual instruction and guided research. 

Our faculty members are internationally active through research projects and performances, and they bring the most current information back to the classroom. Our Rawlins Piano Trio performs regularly throughout the United States and abroad, including prestigious concert series, television and radio broadcasts, appearances at conferences and educational outreach to young audiences.

The Department of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
