Students considering attending Youngstown State University’s Dana School of Music are invited to a Fall Open House, Wednesday, October 14, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Bliss Hall’s first floor lobby near the University Theater Box Office.
Students will have the opportunity to experience a day at Dana by meeting professors and current students; sitting in on vocal and instrumental ensemble rehearsals, student and faculty recitals, and other classes. A full day of information and music has been planned to assist students considering an education in music. Audition and admission information will be available as well as scholarship and financial aid materials.
Students should bring their musical instruments with them as there will likely be time to participate in a variety of ensemble rehearsals.
The Dana School of Music has provided quality music education for over 145 years, producing outstanding alumni in vocal, performance and music education. We are very proud of our history and continuity of educating those who want to pursue music as their life’s work. The Dana Open House encourages students and their parents to review programs that the Dana School of Music offers, and to obtain information for admission to Youngstown State University.

Founded over 140 years ago, the Dana School of Music is one of the oldest music schools in the United States. More than 50 faculty and staff maintain a tradition of conservatory-style music training in a metropolitan university setting. Offered to our students are a wide range of degree programs and majors. Bachelor of Music degrees are awarded in composition, music education, music performance, jazz studies, and  recording technology.  Candidates may also earn the Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in music history, music theory, or applied music. At the graduate level, programs leading to the Master of Music degree are available to full or part time students in the areas of composition, theory, education, history, performance (including conducting) and jazz studies.

In 2004, the Dana School of Music was designated an All-Steinway School. With a value of $837,000, 68 new Steinway pianos were delivered to the Dana School of Music, making YSU the first public university in Ohio to be designated an All-Steinway School.
