Admission & Aid
Choosing a music program that will prepare you for your professional career is one of the most important decisions you will make. At the Lamont School of Music, you will progress through a conservatory-level education within the outstanding liberal arts environment of the University of Denver. With the guidance of our distinguished faculty of artist-teachers, you'll gain the skills and know-how necessary to thrive as a musician.

Every area of study has specific audition or portfolio requirements. Find your requirements on the Lamont Studios page.
