Teaching Area(s): Music

My course on popular music and the Vietnam War came directly out of research that I did on my first sabbatical in fall 2000. My more recent research on the development of British Invasion rock and roll has led directly to my First Year Seminar, “Beyond the Beatles.”

Hands-On Learning

Students who choose to major in music at the University Mount Union have ample opportunities to showcase their talents outside of the classroom. By getting involved in our many student ensembles (multiple bands and choirs as well as orchestral and small ensembles) extracurricular opportunities (such as the Gospel Choir and theater productions) and student organizations (Kappa Kappa Psi and Mu Phi Epsilon), you can strengthen your musical abilities and gain valuable performance experience, both of which are critical to successful careers in music and/or as a musician. All majors and minors are encouraged to participate actively in extracurricular activities and performance groups.

Student showcases are held on designated Thursdays at 11:15 a.m. and give students a chance to perform in front of an audience filled with faculty members, students and other members of the Mount Union community.
