WELCOME to the Indiana State University School of Music
With the summer months almost behind us and an exciting Fall 2022 semester set to begin, we couldn’t be more ready and eager to go. Summer break always gives students and faculty a chance to catch our breath and take stock of what’s next, and this one has been no exception.
Imagine where we ALL were at this time last year: entirely masked up for everything. But, WE MADE IT… In fact, we did far more than just “get through it.” With slight adjustments, we served our students and community, bringing music into everyone’s lives. Now, maskless and always vigilant, we are going full speed ahead. We are PROUD of our entire SYCAMORE family.
For current students, welcome back to campus! Our ensemble directors are fully prepared with performance dates and exciting repertoire. We continue to expand the many off-campus performance opportunities for our talented performers serving both you and our greater Terre Haute community. More than ever, we are cognizant of bringing YOU into all that we do. We’re not just training musicians, educators and business people; we’re focused on making our students the best, most well-prepared THINKERS they can be, ready to take on the world, today, tomorrow and in the years ahead.
If you are a prospective student searching schools, THANK YOU for visiting our website. There are many resources available through the menu buttons on this page, which can answer many of the basic questions about us and what is expected of an incoming student. Beyond that, I invite you to CONNECT with us, one on one. Visit our faculty pages and see all that our talented faculty continue to accomplish in the world. REACH OUT to us: email any of us, call us, or make any enquiry you’d like if something or someone piques your interests. If you’d like to see if someone on our applied faculty is the “right” person for you, let us know and we’ll set up a private, free lesson with them. We don’t just talk about doing well…….we DO well. With music as the focal point of all we do, we also have many opportunities to do GOOD for our community, state, and region. What a combination, doing GOOD and doing it WELL. Come join us!
Finally, if there’s anything I can do for you, please feel free to reach out to me personally at any time. The best thing to do, of course, is to come VISIT us on our beautiful ISU campus. We are the SYCAMORES and would love to welcome you to our family. GO TREES!
