Community Music School

Music Programs

Defiance College offers music lessons on all band and orchestra instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, bass and percussion.

We strive to expand access to music performance and arts education, while providing an outstanding ensemble experience to the community. Students, as well as college and community members, can take lessons and perform with our Black Swamp Symphony Orchestra.

The BSSO meets weekly on Thursdays, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. The ensemble is under the direction of Cassidy Nalepa, Assistant Director of Music Programs.
