Vision and Identity

The Reva and Sid Dewberry Family School of Music

Inspiring artistic and academic excellence — one musician at a time

We, the Dewberry School of Music faculty, guide our students to find their best musical voices; prepare them to fulfill society’s need for artistic and innovative musicians, scholars, music educators, and ambassadors for the arts; and graduate dedicated, responsible musical citizens possessing the highest levels of idealism, passion, and distinction.

The Dewberry School of Music is an inclusive community – students, faculty, performers, scholars, administrators, staff, alumni, and supporters — 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, well-being, and service across the university, commonwealth, nation, and world.
