School of Music Our school of music is one of the best equipped and most efficient schools for musical culture in the South. From the beginning of Brandon Institute it was planned to have thematic department a special feature of the institution. It was therefore equipped with high grade standard instruments and with a faculty especially well qualified and experienced. With this preparation our school of music commanded immediate patronage with excellent talent which enabled the school at once to present a good showing of the department. Almost every student who comes to Brandon studies music in one branch or another, many come to study music only. Some have spoken of Brandon being the Mecca of musicians. The Staunton Daily Leader recently made mention of the music department as follows: "Brandon Institute has gathered to itself more of the best music talent than any school in the entire country." The music recitals, popular concerts, piano, voice, violin, and orchestra concerts with an operetta, given each spring, keeps the students constantly in music practice as well as in an atmosphere of the musical culture. To these local programs are added the additional programs of artists who visit the school from time to time. The various courses offered in music are designed and adapted to the needs of those who wish to prepare for teaching as well as those preparing for entrance to the higher conservatory courses. For further information regarding the music department, please see the courses outlined in the catalog.
