Washington State University offers graduate assistantships to students pursuing a masters degree in performance, composition, or conducting, education, or jazz. I am looking for talented and motivated horn players to be a part of my studio. Whether you are interested in performance or interested in one of the above fields and want to continue to play horn, we have a place for you at WSU. All of our assistantships are open to anyone; they are not assigned to any one studio. Please look at the information below and contact us if you are interested!
Duties: Duties may include assisting in Music Appreciation courses, working in the music library, assisting with and conducting concert ensembles or the marching band, and assisting with music academic classes for music majors.
Horn students will be assigned some of these duties and will also teach extra lessons to music majors, minors, non-majors, and students studying a secondary instrument.
Compensation: Students receiving an assistantship will be awarded a stipend of up to $12, 270 per year plus a full tuition waver (in state or out of state). In addition, students receive medical and dental insurance.
Qualifications: Competition of an undergraduate degree in music, a 3.0 GPA in all undergraduate music courses, a 3.0 GPA in music history and theory, and international students must earn at TOEFL score of 80 or higher.
Audition requirements: Students must audition for the applied faculty member on their instrument. All applicants must demonstrate sufficient proficiency on their major instrument to participate in ensembles at WSU. In addition, every student must submit materials demonstrating proficiency in their desired area of emphasis: conducting, education, jazz, performance, or composition.
Degrees offered: WSU offers a Master of Arts in Music degree.Because our assistantships are not tied to any one studio, the most qualified applicants will be the ones to receive assistantship awards. Please contact the following people for more information:
