Music Department

Welcome to The Music Department

The mission of the music program at Midwestern State University is to provide a comprehensive music curriculum and a wide range of performance opportunities that will equip students for a variety of music careers while enabling them also to become well-rounded persons through involvement in diverse liberal arts courses. The music program endeavors to help students develop aesthetic sensibility, cultural awareness, and social responsibility. Not only are students taught to create within their disciplines, they are challenged to evaluate the quality of what they have created. Central to the mission is to empower students to use their talents to enrich and advance society. With this in mind, the program also serves as a catalyst between the university and the community in promoting artistic activities.
