Auditions: Undergraduate

​Fall 2021 Applicants:​​ 

​​Auditions will not be held in person this year and will instead be replaced by recorded video submissions to your Blue Demon Domain. 

  • ​Classical vocalists and violinists will be required to submit a pre-screen by December 1 and will then submit the audition video only if invited to do so. 

  • For all other instruments: video submissions must be uploaded by February 1.​​

All undergraduate applicants to the School of Music, unless applying for Sound Recording Technology (non-performance track) or Performing Arts Management (BS), are required to audition. 


Classical vocalists and violinists must submit a pre-audition screening video (under "Portfolio Submission"), by December 1. Each piece for the pre-screening should be recorded in a single take and uploaded as an individual track. Recordings of individual tracks edited together from multiple takes are not acceptable. Audio files will not be accepted. 

All other instrumentalists who are not required to submit a pre-screening will be able to upload their video audition submission to their application portal. These are due February 1. 


All woodwind auditions should be performed on the principal instrument of each woodwind family: flute, oboe, Bb/A clarinet, bassoon, and alto saxophone.

All instrumental auditions are unaccompanied. Voice auditions are accompanied. 

Instrumentalists playing saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, string bass, guitar, vibraphone or drum set may choose to perform a classical or jazz audition. Students who wish to have both classical and jazz private instruction should schedule both a classical and jazz audition. Please see your instrumental category for audition requirements.

Private jazz studio instruction and auditions are not available for the following instruments: Cello, Electric Bass, Euphonium, French Horn, Harp, Organ and Electronic Keyboards, Percussion (other than drum set and vibraphone), Tuba,  Viola, Violin, or Woodwinds other than Saxophone.
