About Us

From the DirectorDr. Colin McKenzie

USM's School of Music boasts a longstanding national and international reputation for musical excellence. We provide opportunities for musical and professional growth through our fully accredited programs of study housed within a richly diverse cultural environment.

  • Our student musicians work with distinguished faculty members who perform on world-class stages, teach and perform throughout the world, and bring their rich experiences to our Hattiesburg campus every day.

If you are interested in choosing the School of Music, I hope you will consider making a campus visit. I also encourage you to come see one of our performances in person. The first time you step foot on our campus you will feel at home and will experience first-hand the vibrancy of our music scene! 

If you know Southern Miss School of Music is in your future, be sure to APPLY to the university and schedule an AUDITION.

I look forward to welcoming you to our campus.

Southern Miss to The Top!
