You can make a difference!
musicians consider attending Salisbury University, they are
attracted to our professional faculty, the community atmosphere
that is unique to the Department of Music, the peers they find
in the student body and for the opportunity to perform in our
performing ensembles. As tightened state budgets have forced
tuition increases, we find that those attractions are not quite
enough to draw promising musicians to our campus. We know from
experience that scholarship support will inspire a motivated
student to choose Salisbury University.
The Department of Music
represents an exceptional opportunity to promote the study of
music in a liberal arts atmosphere. Salisbury University has a
long and proud history in this area, and the recent efforts of
the music department faculty, staff, and administration have
poised the school well to move forward to even greater
successes. And word continues to spread about what a strong
institution this is; our enrollment numbers within the
department continue to grow exponentially each year!
One of our proudest
accomplishments is the recent
accreditation of our music program by the National Association
of Schools of Music (NASM). Accreditation,
in practical terms, is a stamp of approval; a sign that an
institution ascribes to, believes in, and has met an external
set of basic criteria for the programs it offers. It indicates
that threshold standards are adhered to in a fashion that
provides a base of academic strength and operational integrity.
you, like us, are excited at the prospect of building an even
stronger program for student musicians. We have seen many
exciting advancements in the past year. The faculty, staff and
especially the students, are grateful for your support and would
welcome any questions you have about the program.
