About our Department

The Department of Music at Southeast offers both a variety of performing and learning experiences usually found at a large university, and the individual attention and relaxed atmosphere expected of a small college. Among the benefits of attending Southeast as a music major are the following:

Mission Statement:

The Department of Music provides a student-centered curriculum to develop the artistic, intellectual, and multi-cultural competence needed to excel in the modern world of music. Experiential learning opportunities prepare students for professional careers in music performance and education as transformative participants in their communities.

Vision Statement:

The Department of Music seeks to be a nationally-known music program recognized for musical and academic excellence.

Our talented faculty offer instruction in all areas of musical study, including music education, performance, composition, electronic composition and world music. This outstanding group of educators has performed both nationally and abroad, with recognition in Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Ireland, Japan, Scotland and the Ukraine. We have numerous performances of university ensembles, faculty and student recitals, and guest recitals at the River Campus.
