Enable every student to find his or her best musical voice; prepare each to fulfill society’s
need for artistic and innovative musicians, scholars, music educators, and ambassadors for the arts;
and graduate each with hope, confidence, and distinction.
The George Mason University School of Music is an inclusive community—students and faculty,
performers and scholars, administrators and staff -- whose common goal is to inspire artistic and academic
excellence as an intrinsic element of a balanced education within an atmosphere of discipline, lifelong
learning, and service within the university, local, national, and international communities.
