The music department welcomes the participation of both majors and non-majors in its ensembles and individual lessons. Auditions are offered each semester, and are designed simply to determine a student’s level of preparation.
We assume that student musicians come to the college with some background in music; if, instead, you are a beginner, we encourage you to study outside of the college structure (for a fee, and not for credit) in order to gain the skills necessary to participate at the college level. The Thames Valley Music School shares our facilities, and has excellent instructors; their office is in Cummings Arts Center 216, and their extension is 860-439-2749. If you are not sure of your level, please come and audition, and we will help you figure out the best course of action.
As a general rule, instrumentalists (with the exception of keyboard and percussion students) should have their own instruments. The music department does own a small collection of instruments that are available for loan to students.
See the music department assistant for details in Cummings Arts Center 216; or call 860-439-2720.
