Maintaining membership with and accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) since 1971, the KSU Area of Music has a long and distinguished legacy of award-winning performance ensembles and has produced leaders in the fields of musical performance and music education. We count among our alumni Grammy-nominated musicians and performers who maintain distinguished national and international careers.

A survey of professional venues reveals our students active in a wide variety of regional as well as national performance arenas, including Broadway and the Metropolitan Opera. Music scholarships are available to vocal and instrumental music majors and non-music majors based on a performance audition.

We invite you to explore our degrees and program options, our award-winning ensembles, our distinguished faculty, and then inquire about and join our distinguished legacy.
