The Performance, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion Program at California State University Fullerton offers an exciting and enriching variety of opportunities for a diverse education.


About this Degree

From symphonic winds to orchestra and jazz bands to chamber ensembles, the School of Music at CSUF provides its students with a wide range of repertoire and performance skills to meet the demands of today’s musicians.

The University Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band and University Band, with an emphasis on musical performance, are part of an ongoing tradition aimed to perpetuate and maintain a great American cultural heritage. These ensembles perform music by composers including Sousa, Gershwin, Bernstein, Ives, Copland and others. Through the study and performance of this genré, musicians will not only develop an appreciation for the music of our time, but will further the tradition of excellence in wind performance at Cal State Fullerton, as well as the traditions of the American Concert Band.

The Master of Music in Performance, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion at California State University Fullerton is an applied-based degree requiring 30 units of study in private lessons, ensembles, chamber music, history and literature, and theory. The Cal State Fullerton School of Music faculty include nationally and internationally recognized performers. Students thrive in an environment large enough to engage in challenging, vital music-making, but intimate enough for specialized individual attention. For those intending to pursue doctoral studies, the Master of Music degree normally leads to the DMA.

  • Auditions as well as Scholarship Auditions for the Master of Music in Performance degree are normally held in Spring (for Fall semester entrance) and each semester (Fall or Spring) during Registration Week, just prior to the start of school. It might be possible to arrange an audition at another time convenient to the student; however, this is unlikely to include scholarship consideration. Under certain circumstances, a video recorded audition may be used for preliminary assessments of ability; however, a live audition is always required.
  • Arrange to have letters of recommendation from three music professionals familiar with your preparation for graduate study sent to the School of Music graduate program adviser.
