Auditions/Entrance Evaluation

All incoming students who wish to major in music should have an initial entrance- evaluation before their degree program begins. Whether in person or by video (live or recorded), students should prepare at least two contrasting solos that display their proficiency on their primary instrument or voice. This process helps place students into the correct level of private lessons and determine their readiness for the Major Ensemble and Master Class.
