  • Courses for non-music majors

    The Desautels Faculty of Music offers several courses of interest to those students outside the faculty. 

    Permission is required from the music registrar to enroll in music courses. Contact the undergraduate student advisor for more information.

    In addition, university students and community members are encouraged to audition for many ensembles.

  • Registration is open to all students for the following courses:

  • A student practices an instrument in a large room with a window and a piano.
  • Music minor for UM students

    Students in other faculties can earn a minor in music while pursuing another program of study. 

    Music minors choose from a wide array of interesting music electives, and are eligible to join any of our many ensembles. 

  • Two singers hold hands and smile as they perform "Only Us" from the musical Dear Evan Hansen
  • Desautels +

    Desautels + is designed for UM students who want to stay connected to the music community while they pursue a different major, are considering a career in music, or want to build their musical skills to prepare to audition for the Desautels Faculty of Music in the future.

Professional development programs
