Faculty Perspective

The most exciting aspect of Weber State’s music major is that it offers a variety of pathways to careers, both in and outside of the music field. I love watching students expand their worlds as they explore music.

In recent years, we have had many terrific in-state piano students who were accepted to piano programs at the U of U, USU and BYU but ended up choosing to come to WSU because of the national and international reputation of our piano program. We also have had piano students who declined admission from world-renowned music programs, such as Juilliard, Eastman, Peabody, USC, Oberlin and U of Michigan, and instead came to WSU.
