Evening Info Sessions

Join NIU School of Music faculty and staff to learn more about majoring in music! During these information sessions, we'll review the college music admissions and audition process, including going over important dates and general college application FAQs. You'll then have the opportunity to attend different breakout sessions to learn more about programs, careers in music, and of course, how to best prepare for your audition!
