Support Music Students By Sponsoring An Instrument
The School of Performance, Visualization and Fine Arts allows students to combine their music interests with other art forms and academic disciplines. The program facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration across the arts, and its location at an institution renowned for its STEM excellence allows students to branch beyond traditional music studies to develop the technological skills needed for 21st century musicians.
Students can take courses focused on modern performance skills, historical perspectives, cultural awareness, music performance and technology concepts and creative ways of thinking about performance. They learn about the role of music in world cultures and develop skills as performers by exploring multiple genres and types of repertoire.
Renowned instructors provide opportunities to practice and perform diverse styles of music in individual and collaborative contexts both in and out of the classroom, and through a dedicated music technology minor, students can also gain experience with audio editing and using technology to make music in new and innovative ways.
The program prepares Aggies to become professional musicians or to explore a variety of careers involving music composition, education, performance, production, technology and therapy. Students can also pursue careers in sound engineering, sound design, artist management and publicity, arts administration and arts journalism.
You can play a part in helping students expand their musical abilities and prepare for careers in the industry. Sponsoring an instrument will provide top-quality equipment for Aggies to hone their skills, while creating a scholarship can help high-achieving students pursue their musical goals in Aggieland. You can also help the school attract and retain top faculty members through a faculty fellowship, professorship, chair or artist in residency.
