Welcome Message

As chair of the music major, it is my pleasure to introduce you to musical study at NSU. Our mission is to help you develop as a musician through expression, imagination, and vision.

We will help you create the technical framework to fully express yourself through music. You may work with a professional symphony, sing with a Broadway star, perform in a musical, play with a pep band at a basketball game, or record your own music. Use your imagination, because opportunities abound for you to be creative at NSU.

We are here to help you expand your musical knowledge, strengthen your technical skills, and craft your personal path. What is your musical vision?

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions about music at NSU.
