Prospective Students

Prospective Students

Welcome to the application and admissions process for the music program at Ave Maria University! We are pleased to offer music scholarship opportunities to students entering in Fall 2015, and cordially invite you to complete your audition with us.

The AMU Music Department is fast becoming recognized for the quality and musical energy of its students. This year, our students will be inspired and challenged by their work in many solo, ensemble, and scholarly contexts. These opportunities for individual growth include performances with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra; master classes and recital performances; and interaction with musical scholars and active professionals. 

Members of our graduating class are preparing to attend graduate schools, or to assume leadership positions in communities, churches, and schools. It is an exciting time to be a part of music at AMU!

Please use the side navigation bar to find important information about the next steps toward joining us as a student musician. Please feel free to contact our Music Department Program Manager, Nicky Rutherford, with any questions you may have about our programs, auditions, or auditioning: april.rutherford@avemaria.edu or 239-280-2485. We would be very happy to hear from you!
