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.
Each of our seven full-time faculty members work directly with students at all levels of classroom and individual instruction. All hold advanced degrees in their specializations and many possess additional certifications. They also bring a wealth of professional experience to the teaching arena, and maintain active performing schedules.
Our music students also enjoy numerous features that make our program unique:
CHADRON – An original piece of choral music, commissioned specially for Chadron State College, will get its world premiere April 15 at Memorial Hall, thanks to a gift from an anonymous donor to the CSC music department.
“Three Nebraska Lyrics,” composed by David von Kampen with original lyrics by Becky Boesen, will be performed by the combined Chadron State College Concert Choir,
