The DePauw University School of Music provides an excellent musical and intellectual foundation that prepares undergraduate musicians to be adaptive leaders, equipped to actively engage their communities and pursue a breadth of career paths. We believe artists should embrace diversity, foster inclusivity, and raise cultural awareness, and this shapes our community and curriculum. In partnership with DePauw’s College of Liberal Arts, we encourage students to integrate creative and practical musical skills with critical thinking and intellectual inquiry, empowering our graduates for a lifetime of learning. Areas of study include Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion, Piano & Organ, Strings, Voice, Music Education, Jazz Studies, and Musical Theatre.
