The Illinois Wesleyan University School of Music Announces Two New Degree Programs:


The Bachelor of Music Degree in Contemporary Musicianship
The Bachelor of Music Degree in String Performance and Pedagogy


This is a very exciting time to be a young musician. New career paths are expanding the range of musical activity available to trained professionals, and the Illinois Wesleyan University School of Music has responded to these developments by creating two new and exciting degree programs.


The School of Music at Illinois Wesleyan is one of few in the country where young musicians can combine an outstanding liberal arts education with the professional training of a fully accredited school of music.


Students have opportunities to perform in solo, chamber and ensemble settings beginning their first semester at IWU.

Personal Attention

Enrollment is intentionally selective, guaranteeing that every student will enjoy close mentoring relationships with our expert faculty.


In recent years, tours have taken IWU's ensembles to Italy, Spain, Russia, and throughout the United States.
