Our employees drive the success of the college, with the achievement of our students the ultimate goal. I have been reading all the other comments and it seems like this field is very tough to be in…and I don’t really want to go into music education.

Our music director is responsible for teaching all vocal parts and coaching students vocally on their solo work. Music is the soul of our company, and we have many opportunities for our employees to connect with the artists or songs they love. One way we can win the war for talented, educated workers is to offer more than just good-paying jobs.

Performing music — solo and with others — is something many people find incredibly fulfilling, regardless of whether they do it professionally.
