The Department of Instrumental Music seeks to provide the curricular and co-curricular experiences that promote the study and performance of instrumental music at Lee University. It recognizes that music and the ability to perform it are gifts from God and strives to instill the guiding principle that good stewardship of those gifts is a responsibility inherent to their endowment.

The department serves its majors by providing intensive, personalized studio instruction and other specialized courses in instrumental music. It serves the School of Music by administering music theory, history and literature courses for all music majors. Besides delivering the music elective component of the general education core to the university, the department also provides elective instruction on a wide spectrum of band, orchestral, and keyboard instruments. Departmental ensembles also invite membership from the entire student body, as well as the surrounding community.
