Working with the community!

ASU School of Music believes in building and sustaining deep relationships with our surrounding communities. Through equitable collaborations we learn with one another and work to make a positive impact on people's lives.  For this reason, we co-create shared spaces to exchange our collective passion for music both on and off the ASU campus. 

We are dedicated to both nurturing and creating mutually beneficial relationships between the School of Music and other organizations, community groups and individuals. This includes developing relationships inside and outside of the local arts community.

The State Press: Tunes at Noon brings students together

"Tunes at Noon" is a weekly open stage concert series for the ASU School of Music community designed to foster a sense of community within the School of Music. The project was launched Mar. 20, 2018 and offers students a place for students to get together and gain additional performance experience.
