Shadowing a Current Music Major

We welcome current high school seniors to shadow a current Boyer student in his/her major of interest. Shadowing includes observing a class or two and ensemble rehearsal, meeting with an Admissions staff member (optional), and to ask current students about their experiences at Temple University as a Music major.

Students can only be shadowed on particular days, and we ask that you observe the following when requesting to shadow a student:
