WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to the Rowan University Department of Music website. I encourage you to explore this site to learn about our outstanding educational offerings, faculty, and upcoming concerts. After visiting our site, please come visit us in person!

Our Department of Music offers personal attention from exemplary faculty for students studying to be music educators, performing musicians, and students seeking a liberal arts focus on music. Optimally sized, the department is large enough to offer a wide range of performance and academic opportunities while small enough to focus on each student as an individual.

Our alumni are performing in top ensembles around the world, serving as music teachers for over 100,000 children, and are leaders in the music field and music education profession. Whether you are looking for a place to study or to hear a great concert, we look forward to your visit. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at 856-256-4651 or music@rowan.edu

Best wishes,

Dr. Rick Dammers
Chairperson, Department of Music

Pfleeger HallThe Music Library provides a space for students to come to find and explore music for lessons, performances, or personal edification. Contained within the library, there is a computer lab outfitted with PCs and Macs. The library collection contains approximately 13,000 scores, 8000 recordings, 400 videos. Most books about music are shelved in Campbell Library, but there is a small collection of books kept in the music branch that have been chosen for their appropriateness to be used in direct conjunction with the score collection.

A studio within the Department of Music can record from all performance spaces in the music building and maintains an archive of student and faculty performances. The archives contain tapes of all faculty, student and ensemble performances since 1972.
