Declaration Process


To become a music major or minor students must complete an entrance audition on their primary instrument or voice.  Please visit our auditions page for further information regarding requirements and dates! Once admitted, students should attend summerstart, fall advising or transitions (transfer students only) where they will receive advising and register for classes. 

Placement Exam

If you have scored a 4 or 5 on the AP theory exam, or completed college courses in music theory, aural skills (ear training) and piano, you will be given a placement exam to determine your entry level for these subjects. These placement exams will take place in fall quarter before school begins.


Mid-year applicants 

Due to the sequential nature of our curriculum and studio availability, mid-year applicants are not recommended. However, if you qualify to take the placement exam, you may be able to start our core classes out of sequence. If you are considering a mid-year application, please reach out to our program coordinator Lee Anne Frahn.
