About

Wayne State University's Department of Music offers students music opportunities to learn, grow, and develop their skills and disciplines in an urban cultural setting. With close proximity to Detroit's cultural center, students have access to the resources of such premiere institutions as the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Public Library, the Detroit Opera House, and Orchestra Hall.
The Department of Music cultivates music as a contemporary and global art, grounded in a long historical tradition, by combining higher education with professional training and experience for its undergraduate and graduate/professional students. The long historical relationship between the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Department of Music allows students to study and coach with exceptional guest artists and resident artist-faculty who are specialists in all musical styles and media.
