Prospective Students

The University of Missouri School of Music offers three undergraduate majors and two minors in music, providing courses of study that prepare students as emerging music professionals in a wide variety of career paths. The School of Music holds three audition dates each year. These audition dates are for students seeking admission as a music or music education major and/or students who are seeking scholarship assistance. If you are unable to attend a Mizzou Music Day, auditions can also be arranged at the convenience of the student and individual instructors. However, you are highly encouraged to attend a Mizzou Music Day. 

If you have questions or would like to schedule a visit, please feel free to contact our admissions coordinator, Ben Harting.
