The UMass Amherst Music Program provides a comprehensive education for students from the Commonwealth and beyond through a combination of established and innovative pedagogical approaches. The faculty works cooperatively, focusing on students and inspiring them to realize their full artistic potential while equipping them with skills to succeed in today's world.

We are committed to distinguishing our program regionally, nationally, and internationally through the creative activity and scholarship of our faculty. Presentations, publications, recordings, and performances constitute a significant presence in the field of music, enhancing the reputation of the department, the college, and the university while contributing to dynamic collaborations both on and off campus.

Serving as a cultural ambassador for music, the UMass Amherst Music Program maintains visibility through broad course offerings, public appearances, and outreach activities within the university and the community at large.
