“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.”

“I’ve grown so much more than I knew I could as an interpreter and as a teacher, and I’ve become part of a supportive group of classmates, with whom I have had the opportunity to develop more than any of us could have alone. Amanda and Elisa (the coordinators) work diligently to be flexible enough to be sure that each student has the opportunity to make our coursework applicable and beneficial to what we’re individually doing or hope to be doing in practice.”
