The School of Music's 60 nationally and internationally recognized faculty are dedicated to supporting students realizing their full potential as music artists, educators and scholars, and our location one hour west of Chicago affords our students unparalleled additional cultural resources.

The school hosts both a New Music Festival and a World Music Festival each year. Students also have the opportunity to study recording arts and take part in Internet2 collaborations.
