    For the audition, students are asked to prepare two classical selections which best demonstrate current performance level on their primary instrument. These selections should be contrasting in style and/or period. For recommendations on appropriate audition repertoire, please consult this repertoire list or contact the

    At the time of the audition, the audition committee will also conduct informal interviews with all prospective music students, and all students will be given an aptitude test (listening to short melodies and discerning differences in melody/tempi—multiple choice format).

  • step 2Submit a Recorded Audition

    First apply for admission to the Department of Music as a music major or minor (see step 1), then submit your recorded audition.

    Live auditions are strongly recommended for all applicants. However, in cases where distance prohibits a visit to the campus (students who live more than 200 miles from campus), recorded auditions are acceptable. Recorded auditions are also accepted from students who are unable to attend any of the live audition dates.

    DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes and other forms of media will not be reviewed. Video recordings must be digitally submitted using the GETACCEPTD platform.

    For further instructions, follow the procedure outlined in the document below called "Recorded Audition Procedures."
