The Frost School of Music Nurtures Young Artists


You’ll find the Frost School of Music at the prestigious University of Miami (UM), where it is also commonly referred to as Shalala Music Reach. The school’s name comes from Donna E. Shalala, who once served as the President of UM. Frost School of Music seeks to encourage growth and development in its students through the study and performance of music, resulting in better communities. These students are taught to be musical ambassadors of peace, hope, and understanding and they come from diverse backgrounds and walks of life.

Established in 1926, Frost School of Music has a nationwide reputation and it is considered to be one of the largest and most prestigious in the country. The school was among the first to spearhead music-related degrees including Music Therapy, Studio Music, and Jazz. Seven years ago, the school broadened its scope, creating Graduate degree programs including a J.D./M.M. in Music Business in collaboration with the University of Miami School of Law, and an M.A. in Arts Presenting. The school also has its own label and publishing company run by its students, the first school to do so in fact.
