The Music programs are designed to provide student musicians the opportunity to become knowledgeable and creative artists, prepared to pursue several career paths within the field of music. Graduates go on to earn graduate degrees at many prestigious institutions.
What makes us great:
A wide variety of music programs; accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Music; a comprehensive faculty comprised of 35 artist-teachers; small class sizes; an emphasis on applied skills with many performance opportunities in solo, chamber and larger ensembles. Westfield State's proximity to several thriving cultural scenes makes it a prime consideration for music programs in Massachusetts.
