WELCOME to the Indiana State University School of Music

Dr. Theodore PiechocinskiFrom Ted. J. Piechocinski, JD, Director of the School of Music:
WELCOME to the ISU School of Music website. It has been a very busy year and, with spring break behind us, we're quickly coming to the end of another successful semester. We've had a great season of audition dates with some terrific incoming students. We're now in the process of making music scholarship offers.

We still have some great on-campus concerts coming up for all of our ensembles. We will also have students traveling to Anaheim, California and Minneapolis, MN for upcoming events. Our School of Music is a very active and exciting environment and we'd love to talk to YOU about joining our community. Please check us out for streamed concerts on our Youtube channel and, if you're interested in pursuing studies in a particular voice or instrument, please feel free to reach out and contact any of our great faculty members. If there's anything I can do to answer your questions about the ISU School of Music, feel free to reach out to me directly at
