Message From Dean

Welcome to the Winters School of Music at William Carey University! It is my pleasure to introduce you to our incredible faculty and students. Our goal at Carey is to help students realize their dreams and goals as church musicians, performers, music therapists, and music educators. We challenge students to develop their own musical capacities, to fully realize their own self-expression, and to affect their world through the power and gift of music.

If you are considering music as a profession, I would love to talk with you. Or, if you want to continue making music while at the university, I would love to help you do that. William Carey University has great music scholarships and ensemble awards, even for non-music majors. So, check us out. Carey may just be the place for you! As our traditional choral blessing says, “The Lord Bless You and Keep You.”

Dr. Don Odom
Dean, Winters School of Music
