As IPFW continues its transition to Purdue University Fort Wayne, the College of Visual and Performing Arts is establishing a School of Music.

The school will offer new degrees in music technology, commercial music, and music industry studies, in addition to existing programs in music performance, music education, and music therapy.

Eager to learn the scope of this project, WBOI's Julia Meek invited John Fishell, IPFW's Director of Music Technology, into the studio earlier this week, to discuss where this ambitious undertaking is headed, and what it will mean for past, present and future music students.
