Message from the Chair

Dr. Scott Morris

I know this is a challenging time and we are working daily with campus officials and faculty members to make the transition to online and remote teaching as smooth as possible. It is very important to maintain a sense of normalcy, which includes daily coursework and practice. This situation will eventually pass, and we don't want to have fallen behind in our development as artists and educators. Music can also be a much-needed escape from uncertain times. I'm reminded of a quote by Maya Angelou that seems quite fitting: “Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”
