At Ottawa University, you will be taught by professional musicians who are committed to working with you take your current musical skills and knowledge to new heights. You will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of music ensembles that perform throughout the year.

Why Ottawa U?

Whether you plan to major in music or simply enjoy performing, there is a place for you at Ottawa University. Our students are taught by acclaimed working professionals who challenge them to rise to the next level in their music careers.

Our Wenger Practice Studios are state-of-the-art and feature a Virtual Acoustic Environment (VAE), which allows you to simulate performing in nine performance environments ranging from a small recital hall to a large cathedral. In addition, your session can be recorded for immediate playback to improve the learning environment and allow you to make adjustments to your performance style for that particular setting.


In 2015, Ottawa University became the first All Steinway School in Kansas. This is an honor that only a few other colleges and universities have achieved. It shows a commitment to excellence for our faculty and all students who take part in the music ensembles.
