An essential step in beginning a major in music is the audition. Its purpose is to evaluate your background and determine your potential as a music student. The audition contains three components: performance, interview and questions/answers. As part of the audition, you will need to perform two to three contrasting works from the standard repertoire in your field of study. We highly recommend early auditions for all applicants. Auditions can be scheduled as part of a campus visit.
