School of Music

Russell D. Widener, director

Graduate degree programs in the School of Music are designed to extend and broaden the professional competency of men and women desiring careers in music. Students may pursue graduate studies in chamber music, conducting, history-literature, music education, pedagogy, performance and composition. While providing for advanced training in the specific skills of music, these graduate programs help to cultivate the student’s capacity to think—to consider impersonally, dispassionately and without prejudice any problem related to the art of music.
