Incoming students who plan to be music majors are required to audition. These auditions help place students into the correct level of private lessons. Students should prepare a solo with contrasting movements. In addition to the audition performance, students also take the Music Theory Placement examination.  An example of this exam is located on the Links & Forms page.

Auditions are offered three times during the academic year. If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled auditions, please get in touch with the head of your instrument area. You can find contact information for the head of each instrument area on the Faculty page. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Academic Advisor, whose contact information can be found on the Contact Us page.
