The EWU Department of Music welcomes students who seek careers in music and also provides music instruction and experience for the general university student. Four degrees with a total of eight options are offered for students who wish to become teachers, performers, composers, conductors, theorists or scholars. A music minor is also available.

EWU MUSIC DEPARTMENT MISSION:

The mission of the EWU Department of Music is 1) to provide the highest quality education for the music major embarking on a career as a performer, composer, educator or scholar; and 2) to educate the non-major about music within a liberal arts tradition as a part of human culture and experience. The Music Department curriculum is designed to engage students of all cultural backgrounds. In order to enrich the community as a whole, the department offers many musical performances for regional audiences and provides educational/performance opportunities for the general public. 

Music Department faculty members combine dedicated teaching with artistic and scholarly excellence. They have succeeded in creating a superior student-centered learning environment. The Music Department is committed to artistic excellence, scholarly achievement, critical thought and clear expression.

Our goal is to provide students with musical instruction and experience of the highest possible quality. Our belief is that the study of music significantly enables students to become informed, responsible and appreciative members of a democratic society-which is a professed goal of Eastern. We recognize differing needs of those for whom music is to become a profession and those for whom it will be an avocation or a listener's art.
