Welcome to Music @ West Liberty!

Learn to Perform, Teach, Direct, and Produce.

The West Liberty University Music Program has been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music since 1972. We offer degree programs in Music Education, Music Performance, and Music Technology. Our award-winning faculty are active professional performers, researchers, and educators. Our low student-to-teacher ratio provides a nurturing experience not found at larger institutions. Students can participate in a wide variety of performance opportunities including band, choir, steel band, electronic music ensemble, and jazz. We encourage you to visit us to learn more.
