Hello Music Student! The Sacramento State School of Music would like to invite you to visit its vibrant music scene by “shadowing” a music major for a day. This is a wonderful opportunity to accompany a music student as they attend lessons, classes, and rehearsals.
  • Along with your “shadow” partner, attend classes in music history, theory, piano, opera theater, music education, and conducting, to name just a few.
  • Join in on rehearsals with any of our dynamic performing ensembles: choirs, bands, orchestra, jazz ensembles, baroque ensemble, student chamber groups, or just relax and enjoy listening.
  • Observe a private lesson or listen to a repertoire class and hear selected students perform.
  • Enjoy chatting with music professors, the chairman of our department, and our admissions counselor for advice and answers to your questions.
  • Have the chance to ask current students what life is like on campus, and find out for yourself what challenges and rewards await a music major at Sac State.
