Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Department of Music at the University of Central Missouri! I hope you will take this opportunity to explore our programs and the many opportunities we have for students, music teachers, and patrons of the arts.
Our number one priority at UCM is the academic and musical success of all our students. To that end, the faculty have developed outstanding performance opportunities and a curriculum with high academic standards to help students achieve their goals. First and foremost, our students are led and instructed by a world-class faculty of performers, scholars, composers, educators, producers, and engineers who model the highest levels of engagement in the music profession through publications, presentations, and performances at the national and international levels. Because of this, our students are reaching great heights while they're here - whether that be through solo recitals and competitions, through conference performances as members of one of our outstanding ensembles, or through the innovative ideas that they develop through working side-by-side with their mentors - and our graduates are making significant impacts, themselves, in their own professional pursuits, all around the world, once they complete their studies at UCM.
Whether you wish to listen to our major ensembles, view our curriculum requirements, or view a list of our upcoming events, our web pages are designed to allow your review of the many opportunities that await you at UCM. If you find an area of interest not addressed in our web page, please email me directly and I will be happy to help find answers to your questions.
After experiencing our department through this virtual environment, I hope you will plan a visit to our campus soon.
I look forward to meeting you!
Scott Lubaroff. DMA
Chair, Department of Music
