Key Program Features
UMO provides multiple performance opportunities for both solo performers and ensembles.
Music facilities include multiple practice rooms, Mac Lab, Smart classroom, Piano Lab, and the historic Hazel Waters Kornegay Assembly Hall.
The Department of Fine Arts Music Division offers three instrumental ensembles (Symphonic Band, Jazz, Band, and Pep Band) and three Choral Ensembles (Concert Choir, Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir) open to all UMO students. Students are welcome to participate in both choral and instrumental ensembles.
- All music majors have the opportunity to take applied lessons on a secondary instrument or vocal lessons in addition to their primary instrument/voice.
- All students taking applied lessons are provided time each week to work with a piano accompanist.
Scholarships are available for students who participate in music ensembles. Scholarships are granted based on audition for each ensemble. Scholarship recipients must meet mandated requirements for each ensemble to maintain scholarship eligibility.
Students with aptitude in music but who are pursuing another field of study for their major often choose to minor in music. The music minor equips students with the basics in applied skills, theory, and history.
