Are you interested in pursuing music as a profession or creatively combining music with another area of study in our innovative LENS program? Do you want to pursue other areas of study entirely but still sing in a choral ensemble? Whatever your interest level in music, whether serious or casual, there are opportunities for YOU in the music department!

In the Ozarks music program, students hone their abilities in vocal, piano, and/or organ performance through private lessons and participation in ensembles and studio classes. In addition, students also study written and aural theory, music history, and a myriad of other topics chosen to explore each student’sown unique interests in the field, which may include topics in church music, film music, literature, or conducting.

What can I do with a music major or minor? Depending on your interests and career goals, our music faculty will help you design an individualized program of study that will combine music with two other areas of study in our LENS program. You will graduate from Ozarks with a unique, well-rounded liberal arts degree, providing you with a multi-focused marketability that will appeal to potential employers and/or graduate programs. You may choose to pursue part-time or full-time employment or graduate studies in music performance, education, therapy, business, composition, church music, or musicology.
