Music at Saint Mary's
Saint Mary’s music faculty are active professionals who serve as nurturing mentors to their students. The department stresses collaboration and cooperation over competition. Faculty and students present an ambitious calendar of recitals and concerts each year. Scholarships are available for incoming students, both majors and non-majors. Music students will have the opportunity to tour nationally and internationally with Saint Mary’s music ensembles.
Saint Mary’s also offers a five-year program that combines a B.A. in Music and a Master of Arts in Instruction for students who intend to pursue a teaching licensure. Contact Janet Heukeshoven, music education program director, for more information.
