Department of Music

Prospective Students

You love music. You can’t wait until your next performance.  You take pride in your work.  You dream of a life filled with music. If this describes you, then you have come to the right place.  Maybe you aspire to be a professional singer, a concert pianist, a high school band director, or an orchestral musician.  Whatever the case, the Department of Music at Auburn University is where you can find your place.

As a music student at Auburn, you will be a member of a dynamic and supportive ensemble of people dedicated to the study and performance of music. You will have the opportunity to learn about and perform music with other students from parts of the world near and far.  You will mentor with our well-respected faculty, a group of highly talented musicians and educators that share a common goal of excellence on the stage and in the classroom.

Prospective music students have many good schools from which to choose.  Sometimes the choices can seem overwhelming and confusing.  Should you go to a big school or a small school?  Should you stay near home or go far away?  Which school is the best?  Where will you fit in?  The answers to these and other questions differ for each person.  The best way to find the answer that is right for you is to do the research, organize the information, and get out to visit the schools and meet the people.  As you do these things, the picture will become clearer and you will become more confident in your ability to make a decision.

Whether you are just now starting your search or are narrowing your choices, we hope that Auburn will rise to the top of your list.  Browse through the information on this site where you can learn about our program, our faculty, and all the exciting things that are happening at Auburn.  When you are ready, you can begin the application process right here online.
