Department of Music Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement:

The UW Department of Music strives to expand students’ knowledge and experience by offering diversity of content in all aspects of musical life, through teaching and performances, seeking to add range and depth to the existing canon of great music, in all its forms. Learn More.

Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music, UW's Department of Music offers a variety of degrees in an environment small enough for personal attention, yet large enough to support musical activity at every level.

We provide an innovative, diverse and challenging curriculum to prepare graduates for a life in music that reflects 21st century opportunities. Our department welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds to create an enriched educational environment where students may dedicate themselves to excellence in collaboration. We resolve to enrich the lives of those we encounter through passionate performance and transformative engagement.

We develop individual musicians in an environment that guides, provides opportunities for excellence and values each student and their experiences. We model excellence in the creation, performance, scholarship and pedagogy of our art. We cultivate creative thinking and reflection, and promote the humanistic value and benefits of life-long music-making in all students, regardless of major.
