When can I audition?

See audition dates listed above. Fill out the online audition application to let us know when you're coming!

What are the audition requirements?

You can find them here. An accompanist will be provided for vocal auditions only.

Are there music scholarships available?

Yes! There are two full-tuition music 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 April 2, 2018.

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

Music scholarships are only a part of the student financial package.

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

We try to send out scholarship letters two weeks after the audition date.

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 aural assessment of each auditioning student. This is to give the faculty an idea of your musicianship.
