A student-centered education in the heart of UW-Madison

We are a community of musicians, scholars and teachers. Since its beginning in 1895, the School of Music has lived out a commitment to a rigorous, student-centered musical education. Our faculty and staff provide models of academic and artistic leadership, and our students reap the benefits of a dynamic public university and the limitless intellectual and artistic opportunities provided in Madison, Wisconsin.
