Why Music Forward?

Everyday on the corner of S.W. Park and Market Street in the heart of Portland, an amazing thing happens.  In classrooms and practice rooms, rehearsals, lessons, jam sessions, recitals and concerts, the future of music comes into being.


In Lincoln Hall at Portland State University, our faculty members and nearly 500 students immerse themselves each day in the same inspiring endeavor – preparing the next generation of performers, teachers, advocates, leaders and champions of music in our community and the world beyond it.

This blog is about where that journey is taking them.  What they are doing with the skills they learned here, and how they living that future. We invite you to share in these stories and spread them.

“Music gives a soul the the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” –Plato
