We are artists and our medium is sound. One of the most dynamic places for string study, the ASU Herberger Institute School of Music provides a balance between the rigors of traditional university training and use-inspired learning to help students forge careers in the arts in the 21st century.
We experiment and probe deeper, searching for new ways to make music. Rather than enrolling in a single ensemble, our instrumental students participate in fluid personnel pools, mirroring the professional world.
Through hours of practice, we learn to create through sound. Each student at the ASU School of Music follows an individually tailored program of ensemble studies, working with leading faculty conductors.
Music brings many communities together. Our music education program supports the development of outstanding individuals who desire to make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults through music.
We develop skills that serve others. Composition + theory open the way to new possibilities.
Music communicates directly to the soul. Lyric Opera Theatre presents four or more productions, both musicals and operas, each academic year with four to seven performances of each.
