Welcome to the Department of Music

Valparaiso University's intellectual rigor and musically challenging curriculum have come together for more than a century, preparing musicians to become the nation's top performers, teachers and scholars. Study within our Center for the Arts offers an array of core music classes, outstanding studio instruction, exceptional performance opportunities, and most importantly, a faculty focused on nurturing the gifts of the college undergraduate.  Valpo invites students from all academic majors to take part in a wide range of music classes, ensembles, and lessons.

--Dr. Joseph Bognar, Chair, Department of Music
