Webster University Department of Music

Webster University Department of Music

Thank you for taking a look at Webster University's Department of Music. We are a gem of a program, located in the lively Saint Louis metropolitan area, with all the benefits of an arts-centric university combined with the delights of a major Midwestern city. Our degree programs in performance, music education, composition, music technology, and music studies are led by 12 dedicated professors, along with over 60 practicing, professional musicians. We offer and encourage international study as part of the curriculum (at our Vienna campus!), meaningful cross-arts partnerships, and a program built around smaller ensembles and professional training experiences.

We hope that the information on Acceptd will spur you to visit our website, make a trip to campus to meet outstanding faculty and check out Webster Groves, and make that application to the music program in one of our nine degree areas. Like most schools, we enjoy live auditions on campus. We do also thoroughly review all videos submitted to us through Acceptd. In either case, you may start that process here by taking a look at news about our programs designed for you. 

Campus visits can be arranged by emailing campusvisit@webster.edu. For more information on our areas of study and degree programs, click here. I'm happy to answer further questions about the Department of Music, and do hope that you'll send me a note!

On behalf of our dedicated faculty and delightful students, welcome to Webster!

Dr. Jeffrey Carter

Chair, Department of Music
