Here you'll find basic information that all incoming music students need to know, though the student handbook is the definitive guide that all music students should read through. If however you have NOT auditioned and been accepted, you're not a music student yet so click here. If you have been accepted, but not completed the theory prerequisite exam click here.

Start of Classes 
The first day of class for Spring quarter is March 29. 

Ensemble Auditions
Registration for ensembles is limited to those students who have auditioned and been admitted into the course by the instructor. Some of you may have auditioned in the spring. For those of you who still need to audition for Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Jazz Bands, or Vocal Jazz, please go the Audition Information Page.

Convo/Studio Schedule 
Attendance at a bi-weekly student convocation hour is required of all students enrolled for music lessons. The first convocation will be on April 11, at 7:00 PM. Attendance at the first convo is EXTREMELY important, as much will be explained about our department to all students at that time. Studio gatherings occur on alternating weeks with Convocation weeks. Visit the convo/studio schedule page for all the dates. Please be sure to read, and know, the Convo and Recital Polices in the Undergraduate HandbookThis is a MUST!

Student Handbooks - a MUST READ! 
The Music student handbooks are available online and are FULL of all of the information you need before embarking on your musical education journey here at Central. Be sure to read the Undergraduate Handbook before classes begin. If you are involved in the Jazz program you should also download and read the BA Jazz Handbook PDF. Graduate students should read the Graduate Handbook.


Locker and Instrument Checkouts
Instrument lockers within the McIntyre Music building are available for students. Some of these lockers are used to store University owned instruments that are also available for student checkout. Students needing lockers and/or instruments must do so with Allen Larsen, Music Department Hall Manager, in his office, room 146. A minimal fee for locker use will be charged to your student account. You are responsible to know and understand the Locker Check Out / Return Polices so please be sure to review them.
