Similar to the study of other disciplines on campus, your work ethic and commitment outside of the classroom will determine your success while in school and following graduation. The college years are your time as a music major to acquaint yourself with the techniques, repertoire, and advanced skills of your specific instrument or voice. Due to the physical and psychological nature inherent in the study of music, one can expect to practice between two and six hours per day. This holds true for both instrumental and vocal majors, regardless of the choice of music education or performance tracks.

Among our many ensembles are University Chorus, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Choir, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and The Hilltopper Marching Band.
