Herbert and Nicole Wertheim School of Music & Performing Arts

Your future is now.

As part of an interdisciplinary college, we offer unique learning experiences within Miami’s only public research university. Students learn from award-winning artist-faculty in accredited programs in the heart of one the country’s most vibrant, diverse, and creative cities. Music students benefit from working in a conservatory-style atmosphere alongside internationally celebrated performers and composers, scholars, and teachers, who are dedicated to inspiring and mentoring the next generation of music leaders. Our School has educated hundreds of performers, scholars, and music educators, many of whom are now leaders in their respective fields across the state of Florida and around the world.

Housed in The Wertheim since 1996, we attract internationally acclaimed musicians and scholars every year to present masterclasses and guest lectures, or to perform side-by-side with our students and faculty artists. The breadth of performance opportunities offered at FIU include orchestral, band, choral, jazz, large and small chamber ensembles, fully-staged operas, and the latest in cutting-edge new music.
