At CFAM’s Department of Music, we’re committed to fostering a collaborative environment where students can explore a variety of opportunities in musical performance and education.
Our innovative curriculum in fundamental music skills offers a solid foundation in theory, history and analysis. Students can put this knowledge to use while still in school, as part of on-campus and community performing groups.
Over the past 20 years, the UNO Department of Music has completed 19 international music tours which have covered more than 20 countries in Asia, Europe, and North America.
- Each year, the Department of Music enrolls more than 200 undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of vocal/choral, keyboard, string, brass, woodwind and percussion.
We’re located in the Janet A. and Willis S. Strauss Performing Arts Center, a hub of musical activity not only for UNO, but also the city of Omaha. The center boasts a 460-seat tunable recital hall with impressive acoustic isolation, well-equipped classrooms, and rehearsal spaces.
