Warmest greetings from the Ohio University School of Music!

For more than a century, the Ohio University School of Music’s rich and vibrant community of musicians, scholars, and practitioners have been devoted to amplifying the transformative power of music as agents of beauty and catalysts for positive change in the world.

Today, the School of Music’s distinguished faculty continue this tradition through their dedication to assisting each student in honing their craft, deepening their artistry, and magnifying their unique, authentic voice. This commitment to rigorous artistic and scholarly work combined with robust mentoring relationships are the cornerstones of the OHIO student experience. Because deep, lasting learning is active and participatory, outreach, community engagement, arts advocacy, and entrepreneurship are central tenets of our work.

While the pages of this website will provide you with a glimpse of our programs, we invite you to visit our gorgeous campus and experience first-hand the extraordinary artistry and unmatched warmth of our people and our exceptional learning environment. We look forward to seeing you!

Sincerely,
Dr. Christopher Fisher
Director, Ohio University School of Music
