FACULTY SPOTLIGHT

Music Faculty, Bands / Music Education "I love the balanced music education curriculum. Not only is it designed to develop great teachers but the degree can be completed in four years and 100% of our annual BME graduates find jobs in the field of education.  Great faculty, great students, four years of study, and a job at the end--what’s not to love?"

JAZZ CLINIC

Morehead State University hosts one of the oldest Jazz Clinics in the Midwest. In its current format the clinic is noncompetitive and features extended workshops with top name clinicians. This is an opportunity for your band to interact in a more meaningful way with the clinicians. At the end of the day the clinicians are featured with the MSU Jazz Ensembles in a concert setting. Please bring your group no matter what their performance level and learn more about this great American art form.

This event will provide musicians with an opportunity to play for and hear other students in master classes and clinics with professional saxophonists, trumpeters, trombonists, pianists, drummers guitarists and bass players.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Music Performance in Jazz Studies and Bachelor of Arts in Traditional Music, Versailles, KY "I feel as if MSU truly prepares you to be a practical / working musician. More importantly, how to practice! When you leave MSU, you should be able to feel confident on your instrument. I already have been utilizing my skills from MSU in the Lexington area."
