We invite any prospective Music majors and minors to contact us to schedule a campus tour, sit in on a class or receive a free preview lesson with Westminster Music Faculty. Auditions for entrance into the Music Department are held annually in January, February, and March. However, music scholarships are given priority to those that audition or submit a DVD/Video audition before March 1st. It is strongly recommended to schedule your audition as early as possible in order to be considered for music scholarship awards.
