Our mission is to provide the best possible musical education in performance, historical literature, and theory, within the scope and aims of a quality liberal arts institution. Our goals include:

  • to provide young musicians the best possible education in performance, historical literature, and theory, all necessary to pursue graduate studies or a career in music;
  • to provide curricular studies in music to the wider campus community, making the study of music available to all;
  • to provide all music students the opportunity to experience courses that support other academic disciplines at Rollins, thus capturing the spirit of the liberal arts education;
  • to provide all students — musician and non-musician alike — multiple performance opportunities;
  • to provide the wider Central Florida community performances of outstanding merit by resident faculty, guest artists, and students, and to provide opportunities to study music avocationally through the Community School of Music.

College Wide Enrichment

Our intent is to bring to the campus and to Central Florida a wide variety of musically enriching activities. Such events support our music curriculum and our service to the Rollins community. We are especially committed to bringing to the campus guest artists and lecturers who help nurture a global perspective of the world of music. We are also committed to helping disadvantaged youth receive educational opportunities in music through scholarship programs in the Community School of Music.

Community School of Music

The Community School of Music trains the future concert professional, the dedicated amateur, and future audience members. Its atmosphere encourages the love of music, delight in creative expression, and the satisfaction of accomplishment through commitment and hard work.
