Visit the campus
Schedule a Tour
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.
IMPORTANT: Prior to travel, please note that we do not offer majors in: bluegrass or popular music styles/genres, songwriting, recording/sound-engineering, guitar, electric bass, banjo, drum-set, or ukulele. We provide this information as a courtesy to you as we know travel can be costly and we want to ensure you have updated information on our programs. You can read more about our programs at: http://blair.vanderbilt.edu/admissions/programs.php.
Please Note: If you are scheduling a visit for a group larger than 15, and less than 30, please call the Blair Admissions Office at 615.322.6181 so that special arrangements can be made. Not all requests can be accommodated, and we are unable to accommodate any group larger than 30. 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
Sample lessons are available by request and based on faculty availability. Students interested in this opportunity must be a current junior or senior in high school, and plan to major in music. When available, these sample lessons are complimentary. If you are interested in a sample lesson with a Blair School faculty member, please contact Blair Admissions.
Prospective students are welcome to observe some of our classes and rehearsals. Please review the list of available classes. As you plan your travel, please note that Fall class visits cannot be accommodated October 24-25, 2019 and after November 22, 2019 due to the academic calendar.
