"As a composition student, the music program at WOU provided me great hands-on training with accomplished faculty who are excellent teachers, as well as opportunities to work with world-class musicians in numerous clinics hosted by the department. I would highly recommend this program."

"My experiences at Western Oregon University were such a profound part of my educational growth and development. I am so grateful for the opportunities I had to gain real world experience and create a professional portfolio that I could use immediately after graduating. I currently serve as Executive Director of Salem Chamber Orchestra, and continue to do freelance music performance, private music lessons, and various recording and arranging projects."
