"The music faculty helped me become a better teacher. The guidance from my piano teacher,
Dr. Martin David Jones, was invaluable. He helped me grow as a pianist and guided
me toward my career and graduate studies."
Music at Augusta University isn't limited to our department. We invite the university
and local community to join us for 125 performances each year including student and faculty recitals,
ensemble, opera and music theatre performances and an annual Gala Concert.
As a music student, you'll receive weekly one-on-one and group instruction from top
tier faculty, such as visiting Artist-in-Residence Wycliffe Gordon. Our commitment
to individualized learning extends to group and master classes which are typically
capped at 25 students to ensure that each student receives personalized attention.
From international performances with the Jazz Ensemble, to campus opera and musical
theatre productions alongside professional musicians, both degree and non-degree musicians
are encouraged to engage in Augusta's music community under the direction of the Department
Our curriculum is designed to help you integrate your passion for music into a future
career, whatever your path. We offer concentrations and minors that allow you to explore
your options for performance and beyond, from working in the music industry to becoming
a music educator.
