Having been a Music major for over three years now, I can vouch for how important it is to be on-campus for music-related obligations. From ensemble rehearsals to in-person classes to finding a practice room on-campus to work in for hours on end, the daily lives of students in departments that require an abundance of in-person activity are impacted this school year because of the presence of Covid-19.
I had the pleasure to speak with Texas State University’s School of Music director, Dr. Joey Martin about adaptations to on-campus ventures. I enjoyed hearing his outlook on the directives that not just the School of Music but Texas State University as a whole is taking to ensure our safety during the pandemic. We discussed new building adjustments, upcoming events and the future of the music department.
You can find more information about the department and all the other functions Dr. Martin mentions on the official School of Music website. You can also keep up with the School of Music on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
