The John M. Long School of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.
The mission of the John M. Long School of Music is to provide opportunities for undergraduate music majors, minors, and non-music majors and graduate music students to develop the musical skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become intelligent/artistic performers and/or consumers of music capable of making informed, independent musical choices. Additionally, the School of Music is a cultural resource for the University and the Troy community and provides appropriate services.
The purpose of the undergraduate music major within the School of Music is to provide educational experiences that will assist students in developing the musical skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to pursue a viable career in the music profession. Each of the three possible tracks - specializations - provides courses to assist students in developing specialized skills, knowledge, and techniques in either choral music, instrumental music, or a selected area within the music industry. The School of Music works in collaboration with the College of Education to provide experiences leading to music teacher certification in Alabama, and supports the University NCATE conceptual framework to develop innovative, informed, reflective decision makers. (The University NCATE conceptual framework is documented in the mission statement of the College of Education in both the print and electronic formats of the University undergraduate and graduate catalogs).
