Student Accomplishments

Western Michigan University's music composition program has a long history of student accomplishments. Students have had success in composition competitions (SEAMUS/ASCAP, American Prize, etc...), adjudicated conference and festival participation (SCI, ICMC, SEAMUS, NYCEMF, etc...), and summer programs (June in Buffalo, Bard, SCIPP, SPLICE Institute, etc...).  Additionally, students seeking graduate study are regularly successful at top institutions, often with graduate assistantships. Students from WMU have recently gone on to study composition at University of Michigan, Northwestern University, University of Missouri-Kansas City, and Bowling Green State University, to name a few.
