Welcome to the WKU Department of Music!

You are visiting a university that is vibrant, exciting and progressive, and a Department of Music that is preparing student musicians for the 21st century. We offer a broad range of music degrees, ensembles, community programs, and activities that exemplify musical diversity and the development of artistic excellence. Our department strives to engage music majors, minors, general students, community members, patrons, and audiences with a love and passion for creativity, expression, and performance through the fine art of making music.

The WKU music faculty believe that music is an essential part of life. They engage in superior solo and ensemble performances and are committed to taking students to the highest level of musicianship and citizenship. Our faculty have achieved national and international recognition for their accomplishments and share this expertise with their students, both in and out of the classroom or studio.

As you peruse our website, it is hoped that you will sense the positive essence of the Department of Music and that you will plan to visit us very soon. Come and be a part of the music family at Western Kentucky University!
