Preparation

High school students preparing for university music study should take every opportunity to study and perform music. High school participation in band, orchestra, chorus, chamber ensembles and musical theater productions is highly recommended. In addition, private piano lessons, as well as vocal or instrumental lessons, will help to provide the incoming student with the basic musical skills and performance competencies necessary for success in pursuing a university degree in music.

Community college transfer students preparing for university music study should be sure that their program is paralleling equivalent courses being offered to freshman and sophomore music majors at CSU Dominguez Hills.
