Institutional Information:

The Department of Music is a unit of the Drake University School of Fine Arts and a visible musical resource for the community and the region.

Its mission is to provide a center for the study and understanding of music that develops students’ intellectual, practical, and expressive abilities by emphasizing professional preparation, collaborative learning, critical thinking, and musical communication. At Drake, you will find the best of both worlds: a music department that is large enough to support a vast range of musical activities, but small enough for students to receive highly personalized instruction and individual mentorship.

Drake music students share in the excitement that comes from working with renowned artists who are committed to excellence. Opportunities abound, enabling students to succeed in their chosen field, whether it's performance, education, music business, or research.

This breadth and depth brings Drake students flexibility in career choices. Graduates of the Drake Department of Music are well-trained and well-rounded musicians who are highly competitive in today's complex and fluid musical world.

Options are plentiful in Des Moines, Iowa's capital and a lively center for arts, culture, and entertainment as well as business and government. Drake students earn positions in the Des Moines Symphony Orchestra and perform in many other venues in the metro area as well as on campus.
