Visit UCI Music

Prospective students are welcome to visit and should plan their trip in advance.  We highly recommend a campus tour.

To learn more about the Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA), contact a Peer Academic Advisor at CTSA Student Affairs.  Tours of the Arts are available by appointment only.


Meeting Music Faculty

Most prospective students will meet faculty when they audition in person, which is a required part of the application process for admission to Music.

  • For more information about auditions and applying to Music, view Auditions.

During the academic year, many of our faculty members do not keep traditional office hours, because private lessons, rehearsals and performances get in the way.  To learn more about available music studies or to seek a private appointment, please view our faculty directory and contact the appropriate professor directly by email.

During the summer, most of our faculty members work away from campus on research or performances.
