Innovation in the Arts

Innovation thrives by cultivating authentic connections between fields of knowledge. Students in music courses focus on music’s role in the rapidly changing world and explore the newest tools, instruments, media, and processes in music through demonstrations, experiences, and experimentation that merge traditional forms of musical expression with emerging technologies and innovative techniques. Students are future-ready for evolving opportunities and advancements in music. They explore opportunities to connect fine arts experiences, content, and skills to college preparation, college and career opportunities, and to an expanding range of career prospects in the field of music.
