School of Music

J. Scheib, Director 

The School of Music offers programs in ensembles and conducting, music education, music history and musicology, music theory and composition, music media production, and music performance. It is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.   

The school offers four-year majors in music performance, music education, music media production, and music composition. 

Admission to major or minor study in music is based on an audition in applied music and an examination in music theory.  

Music majors are required to demonstrate proficiency in one or more of the following: keyboard, symphonic instruments (strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion), guitar, voice, or harp. 

Students majoring or minoring in music are expected to attend weekly recitals and to perform. They will also participate in School of Music ensembles as designated by the faculty and required by the curricula. 

For more information, contact the School of Music, 765-285-5400.
