About Us

UW School of Music Building
Music Building, UW Seattle Campus

The School of Music is a vital part of the artistic and scholarly life of the University of Washington and plays a prominent role in the Seattle and Pacific Northwest music and art communities. Our community includes our students, staff, faculty, and audiences, who come together to create and engage in music that emanates from regions around the globe and across millennia of musical creation. Our concerts reach back to the year 1000 and move forward to pieces newly created on stage as an audience listens.

We are dedicated to creating an environment of educational and artistic excellence in our faculty and students by cultivating creativity, academic discovery, and a wide range of diverse cultures. As a comprehensive School of Music established within one of the world’s finest public research universities, our School is deeply engaged in the creation, practice, scholarship, and pedagogy of music.
