Since its founding in 1946, the Department of Music has enriched the cultural and intellectual life of Washington University and the St. Louis area. Our research faculty specializes in the full range of concert, popular, and world musics. We offer graduate and undergraduate degrees, as well as many courses designed for non-majors. Any Washington University student may enroll in private music lessons or participate in a variety of ensembles. We sponsor over 70 concerts each year featuring students, faculty, and local and visiting artists.
