Music Admissions

In the School of Music our goal is to educate the whole musician, not just to train a performer. All great performances go far beyond technical mastery to include a sense of history, society, culture and art. Through a conservatory approach in a liberal arts setting, our students learn to perform, interpret and teach music in a rich learning environment that provides a broad education and intense training. Our studio teachers are among the finest musicians and teachers in Southern California. The classes are small and your teachers will know you as a person, not just as a name on a class roster.

Whether music is your major or you just have an interest in music, everyone is encouraged to participate in the diverse, musical environment found on campus. At Redlands you can perform in the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Orchestra, Chapel Singers, Bel Canto, University Choir, Studio Jazz Band, Jazz Improv Combo, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Ensembles, and Opera Theater Workshop. Performance opportunities abound with more than 200 performances presented on campus annually, including the University's holiday tradition, the Feast of Lights.

The University of Redlands School of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

You are encouraged to visit campus, observe a class, have a sample lesson and/or sit in on a rehearsal. Come and see what we do!
