More About Gaining Experience

The performances of students also serve an educational purpose. Large ensemble concerts, in addition to being artistic performances, also represent a culmination of skills and techniques that are continuously developed through teaching activities in the various ensemble classes within the Department of Music. Solo recitals by students also represent the culmination of their studies on their principal instruments. Since the principal instrument serves as a means for integrating the various music academics into a product of overall knowledge and musicianship, the student solo recital also serves as the capstone course for the various music degree programs.

For the music faculty, their performances are not only artistic endeavors and cultural highlights for the campus and community, the preparation and performance serve as professional development and as a process for staying current in their profession. Performance is also a way to serve as a role model and mentor for their students.

Theatre and dance productions offer students the opportunity to take part in all aspects of production design, preparation and performance.  This work is intertwined with the theatre and dance curriculum.

Jazz Studies Major, Morehead, KY "My father, for as long as I can remember, has always told me "from the heart, in everything you do." Morehead State, from the professors side, appears to follow the same philosophy. Ever since I started school, my professors have been by my side every step of the way with advice, constructive criticism, and guidance. MSU was a very good choice for me and I feel I will only mature and grow as I continue my education."
