Vision and Identity

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.
