The Southeastern Department of Music has a strong record of placement for our graduates into competitive jobs and graduate programs. Our music education graduates are making a difference in the region serving as strong music educators and our alumni have found professional performing work in a variety of places, including some who have successfully started their own performance ensembles.
We are committed to providing numerous opportunities for the professional and artistic growth of our students. Our applied faculty members maintain performance careers, and have been selected as teachers for national and international festivals and conferences. Our ensembles host noted guest artists ranging from Grammy Award winning Conspirare to the St. Louis Brass. Students have the opportunity to experience quality concerts through the Musical Arts Series featuring such groups as The Kings Singers, Julliard String Quartet, Fifth House, Harlem Boys Choir, to just name a few.
Our student ensembles have been featured performers at state and regional conferences for both instrumental and vocal music professionals.

Individual students are afforded the opportunity to take part in numerous regional, national and international clinics and masterclasses.
As we continue to seek ways to serve the art and region we look towards implementing new programs and initiatives. Newest among these is the Masters of Music Education degree which is now enrolling students. This online program allows educators to continue working while working towards their Masters. Other initiatives include the remodeling of the Recital Hall, new studio spaces, technology updates, and the hiring of new faculty to meet our growing needs.
