UNCG has long been recognized as one of the top music institutions in the United States and has been fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music since 1938. The Department of Music Performance (including composition and jazz) offers the only comprehensive music program from undergraduate through doctoral study in the State of North Carolina. Our outstanding facilities, world-class faculty, and numerous ensemble experiences, provide an environment for artistic and educational success.
Our MM programs offer conservatory-type performance training and complement this with academic offerings directly related to careers in performance. These students graduate with the performance and entrepreneurial skills enabling entry into the profession or further studies. Our DMA students are fully prepared as artist/scholars ready to join the academy.
Located in the artistically thriving Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point, the Triad area provides a wealth of cultural opportunities for our students. Students regularly attend and perform in concerts by the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra, the Greensboro Opera Company, the Winston-Salem Symphony and the Eastern Music Festival, along with a myriad of musical theatre, jazz, and chamber music ensembles.
We seek to welcome students who strive for excellence, who will contribute to the inclusiveness and diversity of our mission, and who wish to make our warm and friendly school their musical home.
