The University of Iowa School of Music is prominent in a fine arts community of international repute. It has long been recognized as one of the excellent university-based music schools in the United States.

The school's on-campus enrollment of approximately 450 music majors is large enough to sustain strong programs in all areas of specialization, yet small enough to ensure the individual attention essential to each student's development.

The faculty consists of highly trained artist-teachers in each specialization area and scholars of international distinction. Private lessons with faculty members are offered in all band and orchestra instruments, and in voice, piano, and organ.

The school's undergraduate programs offer all qualified students, whether music majors or nonmajors, the opportunity for further study of music. In addition to its comprehensive course offerings for majors, the school provides a substantial selection of courses especially recommended for nonmajors and several approved for the GE CLAS Core (see "Courses for Nonmajors" below).

Graduate programs in music are designed primarily to prepare students for teaching in secondary schools, colleges, and universities and for careers in performance and music therapy.

The School of Music is a charter member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The requirements for entrance and for graduation are in accordance with the association's published standards.

The department is one of the academic units in the Division of Performing Arts. The School of Music participates in offering the Certificate in Arts Entrepreneurship and the Certificate in Public Digital Arts.

Courses for Nonmajors

The School of Music offers a wide range of courses that are appropriate for non-music majors. Courses about jazz, music and culture, music history, music software, and other topics are available as well as individual instruction on a number of instruments and voice; see School of Music Courses in this section of the Catalog.

Several School of Music courses are approved for the GE CLAS Core; look for courses with the prefix MUS under "Historical Perspectives," "Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts," and "Values and Culture" in the GE CLAS Core section of the Catalog.

For course descriptions, see School of Music Courses in this section of the Catalog.

It also provides a forum for visiting composers and other creative artists, bringing new music to a variety of outreach venues. Audition, rehearsal, and programming information is available on the Center for New Music website.

The Music Library holds more than 90,000 scores, including chamber music sets; 51,000 books, including bound journals; 125 active periodical subscriptions; and 46,000 media items in all formats. The Arthur and Miriam Canter Rare Book Room holds around 3,000 rare books and scores and has particular strengths in 18th- and 19th-century music theory treatises and instrumental methods, and an outstanding collection of keyboard and chamber music of Ignaz Pleyel. Additional music collections of note are housed in Special Collections and University Archives, including the Goldman Band Collection; the University of Iowa’s Center for New Music papers; and papers of composers Philip Greeley Clapp, William Hibbard, and Donald Martin Jenni. The Music Library holds the School of Music Recordings Archive, including faculty recital and ensemble concert program, audio recordings, and video recordings. 

The Library’s online subscriptions include research tools such as Grove Music Online, RILM, RIPM, RISM, Music Index, International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP), and the Oxford Music Bibliographies. Streaming media resources include Naxos Music Library Jazz and video libraries, Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall, Met Opera on Demand: Student Access, music online, and DRAM.

Materials circulate to University of Iowa faculty and students and to institutions that have reciprocal agreements for interlibrary loan services with the University.
