Welcome to the Department of Music

The Austin Peay State University Department of Music is an active and highly visible component of the Clarksville Community. Composed of approximately 180 music majors and 32 full-time and adjunct faculty, the Department of Music is the largest producer of cultural events in the Clarksville area.

Housed in a state-of-the-art facility completed in 1990, students in the department practice, rehearse, and attend classes in a comfortable environment that is conducive to their creative and intellectual development. Performances take place in the George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall, a 600 seat concert theatre that is regarded as one of the finest acoustical environments in the Southeast. Recent technology upgrades have included a 25 seat computer lab, "smart" classrooms, a completely digitized listening lab, and a video production facility.
