Preparing students for careers in music and beyond
We develop critical thinkers who engage empathetically with their world and make meaningful contributions as performers, educators, scholars, composers and technicians. We challenge established knowledge and experiences through attention to a diverse and multifaceted curriculum leading to a broad understanding of music. We empower students of all majors and backgrounds to develop versatile skill sets and a confident, creative voice through close mentorship and collaboration. Our world-class faculty and facilities provide learning and aesthetic experiences that enrich communities from the Reno-Tahoe region to the international stage.
