Why study at Wausau Conservatory of Music

Music is more than just playing an instrument. Music brings people together in a shared expression of art, emotion and education. Music activates all areas of the brain and stimulates aural, visual and physical learning.  

Whether you’re just starting or you’ve been playing for years, we have opportunities for you. At WCM, we believe music can change the world by activating creative and critical thinking and empowers everyone to find their voice. Share your love of music with our group classes and ensembles.
