The University of Maryland School of Music is dedicated to offering undergraduate and graduate musicians conservatory training, while emphasizing the importance of the combined scholar, performer, educator, and arts advocate in the 21st century. These musicians, in turn, contribute vitally to the enrichment of the present culture, the preservation of our artistic heritage, and to the stimulation of new creative expression for the future.
