Music at UNO
Welcome to the UNO Department of Music
Welcome and thank you for visiting the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Music Department website. With a metropolitan mission of community engagement, music students are highly involved in performance and education throughout the Omaha community.
Students at UNO have performed with the Omaha Symphony, Opera Omaha, Omaha Performing Arts, Omaha Community Playhouse and a variety of arts venues throughout the city. Our international touring program has linked to the global community with students visiting Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Lithuania, and Mexico—just to name a few! Based in a student-centered curriculum, we offer comprehensive undergraduate programs in music education and music performance.
Students study on their applied instrument or voice with faculty members who have the expertise to provide students with a strong foundation of musicianship. Small class sizes and team-taught courses give students a lot of personal attention---attention that makes the difference for our students’ academic success. For non-majors, the department is a place for many to continue the enjoyment of music making.
Ensembles are open to both majors and non-majors and can provide non-major students with an outlet for creative expression and a place to make connections with other students. In addition to our numerous ensembles, courses in music appreciation, jazz studies, world music, rock history, and opera are all available for study. Whether you are seeking a degree in music or are interested in participating in a music course or ensemble, the UNO Department of Music is an exciting place with many wonderful opportunities!
