Bassoon professor Benjamin Coelho teaches a lesson.

When you choose the University of Iowa School of Music, you’ll have an experience beyond the conservatory. It’s the best of both worlds—a small, highly selective program within a large, world-class learning environment. Here you’ll grow as a musician and as a person. You’ll develop your musicianship by performing, composing, and innovating through technology. Plus you’ll have the benefits of a broad-based, comprehensive education from one of the nation’s top universities. 

Come see for yourself how we're composing futures...one musician at a time.
