How Can I Participate?

Wayland Baptist University offers a number of wind ensembles open to music majors, minors or anyone who simply enjoys playing an instrument. Be part of the Marching Pioneers, Symphonic Band or Jazz Ensemble.

What Will I Learn?

Our professors focus on teaching proper techniques to maximize sound, tone, tempo, volume and every other aspect of ensemble performance. Learn to work together with a talented group of musicians, incorporating styles and techniques that will make you a valuable member of any ensemble.

What is the Benefit?

At Wayland, you will also have the opportunity to work with professors outside of the classroom. Our musicians regularly perform alongside their professors in professional collaborations both on and off campus. At Wayland, you are our colleague from day one.

Can I Set Up An Audition?

If you are interested in a scholarship, it's easy to set up an audition. You can audition at Gold Rush in November or set up an individual audition.

A Wayland education is about more than textbooks and classrooms. At Wayland, you will explore, experiment and conduct research on topics that interest you. Here is one story from a Wayland music graduate. You can find more stories on the "We Are Wayland" playlist on our YouTube channel.
