Dr. Andrew Adams, Interim Director, School of Music

To major or minor in music, students must pass an audition in the principal performance area and take a music aptitude examination. This audition is a separate process from admission to the university. A successful audition does not guarantee admission to the university, nor does admission to the university guarantee admission to the music degree program.

Audition days are scheduled in January and February each year for the following Fall semester, or by individual appointment. Visit the department’s website at for more information on auditions and the various degree program.

All declared majors in the School of Music are assessed a Fine Arts Major Fee of $125 each semester to defray the costs of equipment and supplies and for maintenance of practice, lab, and studio spaces.
