The area of Music prides itself in creating a learning environment that focuses on individual student success.  Each student is provided the personalized attention and mentoring necessary to be successful in music.  Our small class sizes - average 12:1 student to faculty ratio - help to guarantee that each student's needs are met.  Students taking music courses are taught by experts in the music field; no graduate teaching assistants teach music courses at Clarion.  All full-time music faculty have terminal degrees in music and maintain an active professional profile in their specialty areas. Additionally, all music faculty serve as academic advisors to music students, so our faculty are intimately involved with the academic progress of each student.
