Department of Music

College of Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Music

The University of Wyoming Department of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and offers a variety of degrees in an environment small enough for personal attention yet large enough to support musical activity at every level.

Mission Statement

The University of Wyoming Department of Music's mission is multi-faceted. As artists/performers/teachers, we offer the highest level of instruction in preparing music majors and non majors for leadership positions as professional performers, excellent teachers, and as continuing creative individuals in the field of music. As active performing community, we continue to position the Department of Music as a state, regional, national, and international artistic and cultural leader in performance, teacher education, research and creative activities. As role models and leaders, we serve the state and region as resources for music educators, for community performances, and as mentors and guides for young musicians seeking future musical careers.
