Soundtrack to Life

The Music Department at DSU takes students down a path leading to successful music careers, whether it is producing music or creating it.

Department of Music

The music degree programs at Delaware State University aren’t merely stepping stones to the big time. They are the big time. Our marching band, jazz band, concert band, and choirs perform at major venues all over the world — including the inaugural parade for President Barack Obama. The music department opened a state-of-the-art teaching studio in 2009, fully equipped with digital recording, composing, and editing tools. This addition to the music department’s facilities has allowed the students at DSU to launch CLASS RECORDS, DSU’s record label.

Delaware State’s bachelor’s program in music celebrates diversity, covering many genres of music from all over the world. Graduates of music programs at DSU routinely transition into careers as music educators, performers, composers, recording artists, and music industry executives.

But it’s in the classroom that Delaware State’s music major truly stands out. In addition to developing superior instrumental skills, students get an excellent, well-rounded academic education that includes professional preparation for a broad range of music-related careers.
