See Yourself in Music at CSU East Bay
The mission of the Department of Music is to offer all students outstanding musical and educational experiences within a nurturing and collegial environment. These experiences provide opportunities for personal and professional enrichment by developing a greater appreciation for and understanding of the art of music. Through performance, creative activity, research, scholarship and teaching, students are prepared for careers as performers, composers, teachers and independent scholars, and for advanced study.
The Music Department occupies a large, modern facility, with over sixty pianos, an outstanding library and Music Resource Center (with extensive chamber music, scores, choral music, orchestral music, and recordings sections), computer music lab (Media Center for Music Technology), studios, practice rooms, rehearsal areas, and recital hall.
