Mission Statement

The mission of the School of Music is to provide the highest quality instruction in the musical arts and to cultivate creative activity and research in the areas of composition, education, musicology, pedagogy, performance, and theory. As part of its mission, the school enriches the musical and educational lives of its students, the university community, and citizens of Tennessee. In support of this mission, the school’s curricula and course offerings are designed to

  • Develop technical and artistic abilities in performance.
  • Foster individual and collaborative work.
  • Promote an understanding of theoretical, historical and cultural studies of music.
  • Provide skills in teaching and the knowledge of educational principles.
  • Encourage interpretive, creative and scholarly expression. Such preparation enables students to be competitive in music careers and related fields and to continue study at an advanced level.

To foster a greater understanding of music, the faculty regularly engage in artistic, educational, and scholarly activities through performances, workshops, publications, and participation in professional organizations.

The school fulfills its service mission to enrich the educational and cultural life of the university community at large by offering a broad range of courses, performance opportunities, as well as public concerts, recitals, and musical productions.

The school also aims to promote a greater understanding of cultural diversity among faculty and students; build a diverse student and faculty community; and offer curricula that require students to engage with the musical richness of our world and develop their own musical identities within an increasingly interconnected globe.
