Take a Trial Lesson and Visit UWO

Taking a trial lesson before or after an audition is encouraged.  Do this by contacting your potential teacher directly.  Trial lessons allow for the student and teacher to get to know one another better without the pressure and time-restraints of an audition.  

Visit UWO on a preview day or other day as scheduled by contacting your potential teacher to best understand the culture of UWO, the Department of Music, and what being a Titan is all about.
