Welcome from the Chair

Douglas Rose PhotoWelcome to the Department of Music at Austin Peay State University! Here at Austin Peay, you will find well-conceived, nationally-accredited programs in music education, composition, and performance that will prepare students for a variety of music-related careers and musical endeavors.

At APSU you will study music in a state-of-the-art facility and be guided by a faculty that is second to none. Our faculty are conscientious mentors who take a personal interest in their students -- and who engage with them in meaningful ways, both in and outside of the classroom/studio. Austin Peay truly is an extraordinary place to study music and to pursue excellence.

We hope you will come to campus to learn firsthand how you will fit into this vibrant and dynamic educational environment.
