This school is a school of business. Every faculty member wants you to succeed and grow in music. When you step in there as a student you leave each class everyday a better musician.

UArts allows every student to explore who they truly want to be once they receive their diploma. The School of Music has exposed me to so many different styles that inspire me everyday. It sincerely is an art school and gives you the freedom to become and artist in any field you choose.
