The School of Music at Northern Illinois University combines the best aspects of a conservatory setting with all of the opportunities and benefits of a major research university.

Our more than 60 faculty are nationally, and internationally, recognized performers and mentors dedicated to supporting you and helping you realize your potential as music artists, educators and scholars.

You’ll have incredible opportunities to perform in a wide range of ensembles in everything from jazz to steelband, orchestra to choirs and those devoted to the music of Indonesia, China and Middle East.

We also host a New Music Festival and a World Music Festival annually.
