All WWU students are welcome and encouraged to join our ensembles, regardless of level, major, or year in school. 

With a variety of options, such as concert bands, orchestras, choirs, jazz bands, and small ensembles, you're sure to find the perfect fit! Note that non-music majors/minors can join Symphonic Band and University Choir without an audition.

The WWU Opera Studio produces a main opera each academic year.

Any WWU student can audition to perform in these productions as well as volunteer for the production crew. All students at WWU are encouraged to audition! Many of our past cast members have been non-music majors and minors!

Take Private Lessons

Private "applied" lessons are available to non-music majors/minors on a space-available basis. Students must have previous experience on instruments. Please note, that some studios may require an official audition to be considered.

Please contact the instructor or Area Coordinator if you are interested in taking lessons.
