Interested in private lessons or non-music major involvement opportunities?

Transfer students can discuss private lesson options with a music faculty member during your orientation session.
Non-music majors should stop by Whalen 2301 between 9:00-11:00 a.m. on Day 3 to discuss opportunities to get involved in ensembles, music classes, and private lessons.
