Welcome to the Department of Music and to WKU! You have chosen a university that is vibrant, exciting and progressive, and a department that is delighted that you have chosen to review what we do on the “Hill.” Our university has been accredited since 1948 for its exemplary music programs, and our department is one that seeks to nurture its musicians, both music majors and majors from other disciplines. We hope you will interact with us as a parent, a concert-goer, a patron or a student. As you peruse the 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.
The WKU music faculty are advocates for keeping music as an integral, important part of life, engage in superior solo and ensemble performances and are committed to taking our students to the highest level of musicianship. 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. I invite you to read about our students, our music programs, our faculty and our alumni. Come and be a part of the music family at WKU and Experience the Best.
