The Music Academy

The Department of Music at Clark Atlanta University announced the inaugural year of the Music Academy in 2010. This organization is an Honor Society sponsored by the Department of Music, music alumni, and churches in the Greater Atlanta Community. The purpose of the organization is to encourage, mentor and reward music majors and minors for academic scholarship, excellent attendance and performance. Invitation is extended to second semester freshmen and sophomores who are in good academic standing. Students must qualify each semester to continue with the program and may apply through their graduating senior year. Qualified minors should apply, but preference is given music majors.

The Music Academy advocates the highest standard of musical excellence and seeks majors and minors who are talented, disciplined, and aspiring musicians. The academy encourages honorees to pursue careers in music and/or to continue their studies in graduate school in the field of music.  The Music Academy will serve as an extended networking agent for its members who are seeking memberships in music organizations, affiliations, competitions, and other career building efforts.

The academy’s secondary objective is to improve retention, graduation, and success. We want the best for our students at Clark Atlanta University and the Department of Music wants to give students who are talented and worthy a competitive edge for making their goals come true.
