School of Music

Here at the Mary Pappert School of Music, we help students become the musicians they want to be with degrees and programs backed by the skills and experiences of our world-class faculty. Our students benefit from state-of-the-art music technology and recording studios, 68 Steinway pianos, and two performance venues, among many other facilities. Your gift helps us to provide our students an education that utilizes all of these resources to their fullest potential.
