CU Music Buffs On-Campus

Prospective Undergraduate Students...

Interested in visiting the College of Music, shadowing a current student, sitting in on classes, rehearsals and lessons?  Come visit and be a "Music Buff on Campus!"

Fred Peterbark, Assistant to the Dean for Recruitment and Outreach, would be happy to schedule you to be "A Student for a Day."  College of Music Student Ambassadors are available for you to shadow Monday-Thursday with the exception of University holidays.  Unfortunately, Fridays are not included in our Student for a Day program as many classes do not meet on Fridays.

Studio performance classes occur once a week.  If you are able, you may want to schedule your visit on the day of your respective area's performance class (Monday - Strings & Jazz; Tuesday - Brass & Percussion; Wednesday - Voice, Composition & Keyboard; Thursday - Woodwinds)

A typical freshman student's day at the College of Music:

  • 8:00am     Music Theory
  • 9:00am     Music History
  • 10:00am     Keyboard
  • 12:00pm     Ensemble Rehearsal
  • 1:30pm     University Tour & Information Session (scheduled separately)
  • 4:00pm     College of Music Information Session with Fred Peterbark

    (**lessons are scheduled on an individual basis throughout the week)
