Auditions

An entrance audition is required for admission to any degree program (including the minor) in the Department of Music. Students must demonstrate that they are prepared to major or minor in music and have a principal performing medium (voice, piano, or a band or orchestral instrument that we teach), on which they demonstrate appropriate level of performance to enter at the college freshman level. This usually requires several years of formal training in a school band, choir or orchestra program, along with private lessons. The entrance audition is a means to evaluate the student not only for technical skill but also for musicianship and musical literacy (including the ability to read music). At the time of the audition, transfer student applicants must provide a listing of repertoire studied in studio lessons at their previous institutions as an additional means to determine studio placement.
