The best way to get a feel for the School of Music is to visit. We offer a variety of opportunities for prospective students and guests.
School of Music Information Sessions and Tours
The School of Music offers information sessions specific to students interested in music as well as tours of the music facilities most weekdays at 1:30pm. Info sessions are led by Music Admissions staff, and tours are led by current music students. Register online
Note that these tours include music facilities only. If you’re interested in seeing the rest of the campus, you’ll need to schedule a separate campus tour (see below).
General University Information Sessions and Tours
General DePaul information sessions and tours of the Lincoln Park Campus are available Monday through Saturday. These are not specific to music students but can be helpful in learning more about the university as a whole. Register online
Trial Lessons with Music Faculty
Students interested in having a trial lesson or meeting with a faculty member should contact that person directly. Details of trial lessons (including costs) are arranged directly with faculty. If you would like to schedule a lesson, we encourage you to arrange this first so that you can plan around it. Faculty bios and contact information can be found here
Observe a Class or Rehearsal
Depending on the time of year, some classes and rehearsals are open for prospective students to observe. If you’re interested in arranging a class or rehearsal observation, feel free to send us an email
with your request.
Attend a Concert
While you’re here, why not see our students in action. We have over 300 student performances each academic year. Almost all of these are free and open to the public. You can find the complete calendar here
