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?"

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."
