The Michigan Difference

The musical world is full of diversity and uncertainty, and students will make many career choices upon graduating from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Students should graduate as analytical, thoughtful, and competent musicians ready for whatever situation presents itself. As saxophonists and music educators, students will develop a complete, thorough knowledge and competency of the repertoire and pedagogy of the saxophone--which will serve as the foundation for their artistry. It is expected that each student, through lessons, performances, studio class, ensembles, and assignments, strives to reach full musical potential. A student's development at Michigan is not simply confined to this campus--it is part of a larger musical community, keeping pace with industry standards by engaging in a strict practice regimen, and striving for excellence in musicianship and scholarship.
