Welcome

Bliss HallFounded 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.

Dana School of Music PRAXIS Summary Report

The Dana School of Music has received the most recent report assessing student performance on the Music Content Knowledge Test for the academic years 2006-2007 through 2011-2012. In most cases, Dana students are performing at or above both national and state averages.

The state has recently opted to use a newly created set of teacher preparation 
tests for all areas of teaching. These are being administered by Pearson and are required 
in place of Praxis tests as of September 2013. Comparative data is not yet available on 
students who have taken these new tests, but information on YSU student results will be 
posted as soon as it becomes available.
