Numerous public concerts and recitals are presented throughout the school year by faculty and students of the Department of Music.
The goal of the department 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.
With a music degree, you may seek employment in music education, music businesses and performing groups--bands, symphonies, jazz/rock, etc--as well as individual performance careers. The placement record of graduates of the Department of Music is excellent.
