Musicians for Hire

The information here is compiled from student submissions of the WMU School of Music Musicians for Hire form. You may contact these students about performance engagements and/or music lessons, as noted.

We believe Western Michigan University music students are exceptional performers and educators, and we hope they are able to serve your needs!

Please note: We maintain this list as a service to our students and to community members who wish to privately hire musicians. You must make logistical and payment arrangements directly with students, without WMU School of Music involvement. Neither the School of Music nor Western Michigan University bears responsibility for arrangements made or services provided.
