- ABOUT LAKELAND
In the words of one noted critic, "All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music." And it is this "condition" of music — its purity of form, its expressive power, and the immediacy of its emotional impact — that has made it so central to every culture. Music is not an educational luxury; rather, it lies at the core of what it means to be human.
The music faculty offers all Lakeland students the opportunity to participate in the performing life of the campus community through vocal and instrumental ensembles. For music majors, the faculty provides an opportunity to turn performance into a vocation, with specialized tracks designed for vocal, instrumental, and piano training.
Students wishing to major in music may choose between one of six emphases: (1) voice performance, (2) instrumental performance, (3) piano performance, (4) music education-choral music certification, (5) music education-instrumental music certification, and (6) music education-general music certification. Those choosing music education-general music certification will choose a concentration from among instrumental, vocal, and piano.
In addition to aspiring to excellence in their teaching and performance areas, students develop strong broad-based music skills through the music core classes. Thus, students develop clear conducting skills, proficient piano skills, and functional aural skills. Students also develop functional understandings of the musical language and of music history and literature. Summarily, Lakeland's music program strives to cultivate professional discipline and aesthetic appreciation in its students.
