Audition requirements: 

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 either email or fax us a copy of the accompaniments as soon as possible.  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 music faculty.
