Welcome to the School of Music at Indiana State University, a school with a long-standing tradition of excellence in the training of musicians for a variety of professional pursuits. Indiana State music graduates have distinguished themselves in a variety of ways. Many are outstanding teachers in public schools, colleges/universities and private studios while others have achieved recognition in such specialized areas as music business and performance. The music faculty, a community of scholars, performers and teachers, share an uncommonly strong commitment to their students in the school.

Resources for music educators

The School of Music is a great resource for arts educators. We encourage area educators to consider class trips to experience one of our many faculty or student recitals, which are generally free and open to the public. Many of our faculty members are willing to do workshops or masterclasses and our faculty ensembles frequently do outreach in schools. Private music lessons for adults and students are available through the Community School of the Arts
