Whatever the path, the journey begins in the teaching studio, the classroom, the practice room, and the concert hall. At Northwestern our distinguished faculty offer rigorous, conservatory-level training designed to prepare musicians of the very highest caliber. Our exceptionally well-rounded students enjoy the benefit of this training at a major research university that prizes both musical and academic achievement. The combination of outstanding musicianship, keen intelligence, and curiosity about the world produces a unique creative voice.
Foremost in cultivating and nurturing that voice in each individual is our faculty's peerless dedication to collaborative teaching. Our wide range of programs offers students the flexibility to pursue varied interests. Opportunities abound for students to initiate and participate in projects outside the classroom that promote learning, personal growth, and community involvement. And with our campus located just north of Chicago, students are ideally situated to take advantage of this great city's world-class music making and other cultural resources.
A Bienen School of Music education provides students with skills and values — superb musicianship, a mastery of communication, a sense of discipline, a commitment to excellence — that will prepare them for success wherever their interests may lead. We at Northwestern look forward to guiding the next generation of musicians on that journey.
