Visit the Moores School of Music!

Prospective undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to experience our program first-hand by shadowing our music major Ambassadors, attending classes and rehearsals, meeting our faculty, and touring our facility.  In addition to attending our various events throughout the day, students will meet with the Admissions Coordinator about application, audition, admission, and scholarships, then go on a tour of our facilities.

Visits to the Moores School of Music are available Monday through Friday. While we offer visits year-round, it is highly recommended that students visit when classes are in session.

To arrange a visit, please send an email to musicadmissions@uh.edu. *Advanced scheduling (at least 2 business days) is appreciated.
