The University of Akron - 2018-19 auditions

Post by CJBlaha »

The tuba & euphonium studio at The University of Akron is looking for more talented musicians to join us. Currently at 19 students, studio members actively perform and teach throughout Akron and NE Ohio. Scholarships are available for, both, euphoniumists and tubists. Recent graduates are pursuing advanced studies at Illinois & Michigan State, as well as beginning performing careers with the US Marine Bands.

The University of Akron is home to over 22,000 students and offers opportunities to be engaged in the musical communities of Akron, Canton and Cleveland, as well as work with the excellent band programs in our area." target="_blank

In addition to UA ensembles (bands, tuba/euph ensemble, brass choir, chamber music), students play with area brass bands and have opportunities to develop their teaching chops by assisting with high school marching bands and teaching private lessons.

Scholarship opportunities for undergrads include music and academic scholarships, as well as an automatic $1000 scholarship for students who play in the UA Marching Band. Graduate assistantships in performance are available for my studio, as well as assistantships in music education, conducting or as a paid member of the marching band staff. Full assistantships currently cover tuition + approx. $7200 this year.
