Our primary goal is to prepare musicians for careers in Music Education, Music Industry, or Applied Music.  The development of teaching strategies, critical thinking, and communication skills is an important part in the study of music at Chadron State College.  The students are given the opportunity to develop networking and marketing skills as performers and as educators.
