UNK's music programs offer quality instruction, personal supervision, and excellent and varied performance opportunities.  All of our full-time faculty have earned doctorates or the highest degree in their discipline, yet each teaches all levels of students from freshman to graduates.

Small classes and immediate musical involvement provide channels for student activity.  All programs give students purposeful, realistic and challenging learning situations, and are fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
