Performing Arts

Once identified, talent needs to be cultivated. That’s exactly what our performing arts and musical therapy programs do best. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence so that they can perform fearlessly, on stage or with clients. So no matter if you’re a singer, musician, actor or musical therapist, our faculty has ties to your industry of interest, and can help turn your interest into a full-fledged career.
