This image shows a man conducting a band practice in a classroom in I. G. Greer Hall, built 1950, in the Department of Music Education at Appalachian State Teachers College (1929-1967) in the 1960s. Students can be seen sitting behind music stands playing instruments in the foreground, and three students and a young boy can be seen sitting in the background. The Department of Music became the Hayes School of Music in 1988 and was named for Mariam Cannon Hayes, former member of the Appalachian State Board of Trustees and current member of the Hayes School of Music Advisory Board. The School of Music provides majors in Music Education, Music Performance, Music Therapy, Sacred Music, Composition and Theory, Music Industry Studies, and Jazz Studies. The Department is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music, and students perform recitals and concerts throughout the year.
