Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in the University of Kentucky Bands! Whether your interest is concert or percussion ensembles, jazz band, marching band or private lessons, there is a place for you here.


Throughout the website, you will find lots of information about the various wind and percussion ensembles offered at UK, potential scholarship resources for music majors AND non-majors, and frequently-asked questions about the UK Bands. All ensembles are open to any UK student, regardless of major. If you plan to major in music, however, you will need to audition and be accepted into the School of Music. For more information about the School of Music and the audition process, consult the School of Music webpage.
