At the University of Alabama in Huntsville, ALL students can be involved in the Department of Music. In addition to music majors and music minors, any student on campus can participate in music ensembles or take private lessons.
Music Major & Music Minor Auditions
Students interested in becoming a music major or a music minor must audition to be accepted into the program. More information on the audition process for music majors and music minors is available here.
Students who want to participate in ensembles without being a music major or music minor only need to audition for the director of the relevant ensemble(s). More ensemble audtition information is available here.
Students register and receive credit for ensembles, like other classes. Ensembles rehearsing three hours per week receive 1 credit hour. Those rehearsing 1.5 hours per week receive 0.5 credit hour.
Any student on campus may take private lessons in piano, guitar, bass, voice, and many other band and orchestra instruments. This is a one-credit class that meets one-on-one with the teacher for 30 minutes each week at a time to be determined. To register for these private lessons, students MUST contact Ms. Cil Spina in the Department of Music Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 256-824-6436. It is not possible to register for these private lessons any other way.
