Apply and Audition

Embarking on a music education is a big decision. We can help you make the best choices to reach your goals.

Before you apply for admission, we invite you to explore the Desautels Faculty of Music. A good place to start is our annual open house, where you can see what our classes, ensembles and master classes are all about. You’ll have the opportunity to speak to our faculty and experience our new Taché Arts Complex. You can also request a general campus tour.

Browse through the Degree and Diploma Programs section to learn about the types of programs we offer and our major areas of study. Academic advisors are here to give you advice on the best route to achieving your personal and career goals.
