Apply / Audition

To become a music student at Northern you will apply to the university and complete an audition and basic music theory diagnostic tests.

I encourage you to have a free lesson with me. Contact me at or 815-753-8004 to arrange a time.

NIU Open Houses are scheduled throughout the year. These are good days to visit with me.
