Director’s Message

Welcome to the School of Music at Florida International University!

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the director of a dynamic and diverse School of Music that is truly “international” in scope.  At FIU, we strive to be Worlds Ahead and a perusal of our faculty profiles, student ensembles, and alumni accomplishments will give you a strong sense of how we live up to that motto every day.

If you are looking for the right school to advance your career in music, let me invite you to begin your search at FIU.  Our award-winning faculty are all active professionals through whom you can establish direct connections to the profession. We also believe that, in order to build your 21st century career in music, you will have to be more than a talented musician and outstanding scholar. At FIU, we nurture a culture of entrepreneurship and emphasize the latest in music technology and business skills.

If you are considering a career in music and want to know more about our programs, please contact one of our program coordinators for more information.

During our 2016-17 concert season, we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Hebert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center. Please visit us and join the celebration!
