Students majoring in Music Education will be able to complete their degree in four years. Very few programs are able to offer that. Here at Siena Heights, we have the small, flexible program that is able to do it.
With a theme of “Committed to Excellence,” the SHU Music Department wants its students to receive the background and experience to teach in a variety of fields, including instrumental and chorale.
And the Liberal Arts is infused in what we do in Music Education as well. You’ll get to know the faculty personally, and classes will work together to inform each other. In other words, it’s all one, big four-year classroom.
Call it harmonious.

Check back for the 2018 dates!
In October 2016, Siena Heights University broke ground on the new Mary and Sash Spencer Performing Arts Center. The existing theater space will be renovated for enhanced acoustic performance as to serve the students in our growing music program. A new band room, dance studio and recital rooms will help expand the footprint of the facility by more than 18,000 square feet.
The new $11 million facility is scheduled to open in Fall 2018.
