Are there scholarships available?

Yes! There are two full tuition scholarships available this year. In order to be eligible, please choose one of the first two audition dates. The full tuition scholarships will be awarded by March 10, 2017.

Other scholarships range from $1,000 to $6,000 per year. These will be available equally on each audition day.

When will I find out about my scholarship once I've auditioned?

If you are auditioning in January or February, you will receive a letter outlining scholarship information by March 10, 2017. If you are auditioning in March, you will be notified within two weeks of the audition.

Is there a music theory test during the auditioning process?

There is a short music theory assessment to help you know what your strengths and weaknesses are entering Theory I. After the audition, you will receive the results and a tutorial you can use to strengthen your skills.

Should I audition on more than one instrument?

If you are undecided about your performance area, or if you are considering double majoring, you may audition on more than one instrument. If piano is your secondary instrument, please prepare a short piece to play.

What should I wear to my audition?

Please dress nicely. You want to look and feel professional.

What else should I know about auditioning?

There will be a short tonal and rhythmic assessment of each auditioner that does not include sight-reading. This is to give the faculty an idea of your musicianship.
