Department of Music
Welcome From the Chair
Welcome to the University of Tennessee at Martin Department of Music. We are thriving, growing, and excited about the future! We look forward to moving into the renovated Fine Arts Building during the spring semester of 2013. Our music major enrollment remains strong. This fall we welcomed Dr. John Oelrich as Director of Bands; Matt Stratton will continue to direct the athletic bands. These are indeed exciting times for music at UTM!
This past summer the clarinet quartet toured Thailand. Next summer a choral group is going to New Zealand. In addition, UTM hosted a second Drum Corps International competition on campus.
Students and parents, we encourage you to explore this website to see what UTM has to offer. We help students become highly educated citizens as they prepare for a career as a music educator, a performer, or a researcher. Our graduates are successful in finding employment in music and succeeding in graduate school. Our top-notch faculty is noted for excellence in teaching while truly caring about the success of each student.
Come for a visit!
