The Wingate University Department of Music, accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), is widely recognized as one of the finest programs among liberal arts universities in the Southeast. Our students and ensembles have performed at state (NCMEA), regional (ACDA) and national (CBDNA) conferences. We have 100% job placement for our music education graduates, and many of our graduates have continued on to graduate school, including such esteemed programs as The Ohio State University, Louisiana State University and the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.
Auditions are a required part of becoming a music major at Wingate University, but you have an opportunity to earn financial aid too. The key things to remember about the process are:
Incoming freshmen are eligible for the scholarship, and it is renewable on a yearly basis. You are encouraged to audition in person, but in special circumstances, arrangements can be made for those who need to submit a recording.
You can either provide your own accompanist or one can be provided to you by the department upon request.
