Dr. Marc H. Peretz 

Associate Provost and Former Chair of the Department of Music

“The Department of Music provides a personal, nurturing environment to our students along with numerous practical opportunities to enhance their musical performance skills. In addition, our music education majors engage in a variety of field practicum experiences that permit them to participate in diverse teaching and learning situations. With its emphasis on teaching and individual attention to students, the Department of Music offers our majors programs of study that combine both theory and practice and that prepare them to successfully pursue their musical goals. A highly experienced faculty engages our students in small classes that take place in modern classrooms equipped with the latest instructional technology tools available. Our students also work in a fine music lab housing both a 20 station digital piano lab and a 20 station MIDI-equipped computer lab. The Rhea Miller Recital Hall, in which our students perform, is one of the finest music performance venues in this part of the country.”
