FACULTY SPOTLIGHT

Pamela Workman - thumbnail
Costume Shop Supervisor, Theatre Faculty "Morehead State University holds a certain place in my heart. This is where I learned that costumes is not just a hobby, this is a career.  This is where I learned to stretch my mind and imagination as an actress, technician, and designer.  The theatre program gave all students the chance to thrive and succeed. Now, returning to MSU as a member of faculty,  I still find that the MSU theatre program is an aspiring environment for students to develop into their future selves.  The facilities and  faculty members here are fantastic and determined to help all that desire to succeed do so."

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

Graduate, MM Performance, Greensboro, NC "After 10 years of playing professionally, I decided to finish my degree. I wanted to study with a seasoned pro, but also wanted a school I would get personalized attention more than just once a week. Mr. Wing genuinely cares about my progress and success, and I can't imagine being anywhere else."
