Shadow Day

The best way to know what it's like being a music major at Sac to try it! 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, free 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, 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.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get first-hand information! To schedule the date of your visit and to arrange for your “shadow day” student host, simply call or email the professor who represents your area of interest, from the list at the right. We are flexible, and can find a day that works best with your schedule.
