Music living-learning community

A living-learning community to support students in a successful transition to college and give music students an edge in the classroom and their careers.

WHAT IS THE MUSIC LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITY?

The music living-learning community is a group of students involved in music.  Students in the Grand View Choir or the Wind Ensemble live near one another – freshmen on one floor and upper classmen in a nearby residence hall.  The living-learning community is for active, involved music students (regardless of major) who wish to dig deeper into their music and the music life in Des Moines.  Students will form a bond with other musicians and learn to prioritize and manage their personal and academic life, as well as build interpersonal relationships with peers and professors.  It’s a great way to find people you can relate to from the moment you arrive on campus.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Develop an instant network of support from peers and music faculty members.
  • Learn how to balance your music-making with other important aspects of college.
  • Form a community that can help you be a better musician.
  • Gain valuable advice and mentoring from upper classmen who are also student musicians.

WHO CAN LIVE IN THE MUSIC LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITY?

Any student participating in the Grand View Choir or Wind Ensemble and interested in developing their musical, academic, and social strengths.

IS THERE A COST?

There is an additional $50 fee per semester to live in the Music Living-Learning Community.  This fee will help cover the cost of concerts and events.
