HUB - Junior Day

Music Education Starts Here!

VanderCook College of Music has been the premier institution for music education for over 100 years. Our unique curriculum prepares the whole music educator, emphasizing performance as well as instructional methods. VCM will fully prepare you to teach band, orchestra, choir, and general music and our degree programs offer a thorough, comprehensive course of study rooted in collaborative music-making and hands-on, project-based learning in a conservatory-like atmosphere.

Plan your visit!

Make plans now to visit the VanderCook College of Music campus where you will participate in rehearsals and classes, meet our faculty and staff, learn more about scholarships and financial aid opportunities, talk with faculty regarding audition preparation, and more!
