Experience the Department of Music

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a music major at Towson University? The Department of Music offers two different experiences that will help to give you the answer. Every October, we host "Music Major for a Day," an open house for high school juniors in which prospective students can participate in our masterclasses, rehearsals, and academic classes and hear a showcase recital of current students. Or for a more personalized visit, see below for information on "Shadow Days."



Prospective students are invited to register for a "Shadow Day," a personalized visit to the Department of Music that can include the following experiential activities, tailored to your specific time constraints and needs:

  • Take a free lesson (instrument/voice/composition) with a member of our faculty
  • Meet TU students within your particular area of interest
  • Attend a class alongside TU music students
  • Meet with the Assistant to the Chair for information about our degree programs, applying to the Department of Music, scholarships, or to address any questions you may have
  • Parents are welcome to meet with an academic advisor too

Register for a "Shadow Day" to experience first-hand our quality programs ans instruction. Learn from current music majors, faculty and staff what it means to study music at TU. We look forward to meeting you!
