About Us

USFQ's College of Music (CoM) is, without a doubt, the most important music school in Ecuador. For 18 years, the CoM has assumed the responsibility of preparing, strengthening, supporting, and believing in the country's musicians. A member of the prestigious Berklee International Network, the CoM has become a South American leader in teaching music production, contemporary music performance, and composition for contemporary media.

In addition to having a first-rate teaching body — recognized in various musical spaces in Ecuador and the world — the CoM promotes artistic-cultural dissemination. This is evidenced through its specialized seminars, concerts, events, guest artists, master classes, etc.

The program was born in 1999 as the Institute of Contemporary Music (IMC), with 26 students and 2 professors. In 2013 the IMC was transformed into the Music College, with more than 400 students and 27 professors today. Currently, the student population does not come only from Ecuador, but from different countries in America, thus creating an environment of true diversity and respect for different cultures. The CoM trains a new generation of professional musicians and producers, who will take on the challenge of developing and fostering culture and the new music industry.
