Students wishing to enter as music majors in one of these degree programs for the 2012-2013 school-year will be required to audition. In addition to determining admittance to the department, the audition also determines student eligibility for music department scholarships. Once awarded, the scholarships are renewable annually.

Please be prepared to perform two pieces of your own choosing in contrasting styles (they do not need to be lengthy). If you would like to be accompanied, please let us know in advance, and bring along an original copy of the accompaniments (not a photocopy). Instrumentalists will be asked to play several scales. The audition will also include a brief sight-reading and tonal memory assessment, a diagnostic music knowledge test (for placement purposes only), and an informal interview with the Department Chair.
