We are hosting a fall orientation for all music majors on Monday, September 25, at 1:00 pm in Room 115, Music Building.
We will review major requirements, the different tracks, auditions, lessons, instruments, lockers, practice rooms, the music library, listening lab, and tickets to concerts. Come meet your advisers, fellow students, and staff members—some important people who can help you navigate your way to a degree in music.
Many lower division Music courses require concurrent enrollment each quarter. If you add these courses together to your course selection list in Schedule Builder, then you will not need to submit a petition to enroll in the courses, because the system will recognize the courses are concurrent:
