Music Department Mission Statement

The faculty of the Swinney Conservatory are committed to facilitating student growth. Daily, we create opportunities for engaged students to develop musical maturity, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to the community.

Our graduates demonstrate professional and musical excellence, creative and analytical thinking, articulate and thoughtful communication, and a commitment to service and leadership.

The Conservatory serves three constituencies: scholar-musicians preparing for a career in music, students participating in music as an additional dimension to their studies, and those who participate in music to increase their knowledge and aesthetic sensitivity.
