Because of our focus on a quality undergraduate experience combined with our moderate size, our students are afforded the opportunity to participate in a variety of ensembles, orchestras and performances while receiving individualized attention and instruction from active professionals in their field. The breadth and depth of our engaging curriculum prepares students for an array of musical professions and, consistently, our students enjoy successful careers and graduate school opportunities at prestigious institutions upon graduation.
As the Undergraduate Program Counselor, I am here to assist you in being a successful music student from admission to the University through graduation. Whether you're an incoming freshman trying to navigate the newness of campus or a transfer student wondering how your credits transferred in, I'm here to help.
