Visit the College of Music!

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, all in-person tours and information sessions have been suspended until further notice. For that reason, the College of Music is offering virtual music information sessions and tours through Zoom. These sessions begin with an overview of the music admission, application, audition, and scholarship procedures followed by a curricular discussion with one of our staff members. Then, guests have the chance to meet with a current music major and view a virtual tour of the College of Music.

UPDATE: As of October 8, 2020, general campus tours have resumed on a limited basis. Visit https://tours.unt.edu/ to learn more. Please note these tours DO NOT include visiting the College of Music nor music rehearsal/performance spaces, as our buildings remain closed to visitors. Once we receive approval to begin offering in-person music tours, we will update this site accordingly. 

Please click on the link below to review our upcoming schedule and sign up for our virtual information session and virtual tour. All sessions are approximately 90-minutes in length and limited to one family per tour.

FAQs

How do I sign up for a music tour or information session?

            -Register through SignUpGenius or email our music ambassadors at music.ambassador@unt.edu

Is it possible to schedule a University tour on the same day as my music tour?

            -Follow the instructions at https://tours.unt.edu to register for a general campus tour.

Is it possible to meet with a faculty member during my visit?

            -If you are interested in meeting a faculty member during your visit, please email them directly well ahead of your scheduled tour date to inquire - http://music.unt.edu/faculty-and-staff. Please note faculty availability is not guaranteed and is occurring virtually for the time being. 

May I audition when I visit for a tour or information session?

            -College of Music auditions are by invitation only following the completion of the online music application. For additional information on the admission and audition process, click here http://music.unt.edu/admissions.

Do you offer tours on the weekends?

            -Unfortunately, we do not offer tours or information sessions on the weekends or on University holidays. We want you to be able to experience ensemble rehearsals and hear from a current music major when you are here. Twice a year UNT Admissions offers UNT Preview, which is a great opportunity to visit on a Saturday and learn about UNT and the College of Music. Check the Admission Event and Convention listing to see if we are attending a college fair or convention in your area.

Do you offer music tours during audition days?

            -Tours of the music building are not offered the Thursday or Friday prior to auditions or on the Saturday audition days. Applicants scheduled to audition are invited to sit-in on music classes, ensemble rehearsals, and question and answer sessions with our Ambassadors during that time. We do offer a music-specific campus tour on the Saturday audition days, view your schedule of events for time and location.

Why is the day I am interested not available on the calendar?

            -College of Music tours fill quickly! These sessions are intentionally small to allow prospective students and parents the opportunity to ask questions specific to their major/instrument and to allow the group to visit ensemble rehearsals without disturbing our current students. Feel free to reach out to music.ambassador@unt.edu for assistance in finding a tour that works with your schedule. 

Do you offer group tours?

           -The College of Music does not currently offer group tours due to space and staff limitations. Visit https://tours.unt.edu to schedule a group tour of UNT’s great campus coordinated by the Visitor Experience team.

Where should I stay when I visit the College of Music?

-Please review our list of local hotels with dicounted UNT rates. Note - We encourage you to contact all hotels directly, as restrictions might be in place due to COVID-19.
