Visiting our campus provides an excellent opportunity to picture yourself here as a student. Blair tours begin with a 30-minute information session, followed by a 30-minute tour of the school. To schedule a tour of the Blair School of Music, please complete the registration form at the bottom of the page. If you'd like to schedule a tour of Vanderbilt University's main campus, you may do so at the Vanderbilt Admissions website.

Please Note: If you are scheduling a visit for a group larger than 15, and less than 85, please call the Blair Admissions Office at 615.322.6181 so that special arrangements can be made. Not all requests can be accommodated. Please provide at least three weeks advance notice for large group tours to be scheduled. Groups traveling by bus may be dropped off at the Blair School main entrance (2400 Blakemore Avenue--the main circle drive is on Children's Way).  Please confirm parking arrangements with Blair Admissions; parking is available in Lot 74A

Schedule a Lesson

Private lessons may be scheduled for those students who are current or rising high school seniors intending to major in music. If you are interested in a private lesson with a Blair School faculty member, please contact them directly for details (availability, lesson policies, possible fees, etc.). Please find a list of faculty by department here.

Please Note: Schedules vary during the summer months and our faculty are often unable to accommodate lessons during this time. If you have a question about specific summertime availability, please contact Blair Admissions.
