Music Scholarship Audition Days

Auditioning for a music scholarship is easy, sign-up today! 



INSTRUMENTAL AUDITIONS -
  • Prepare either two short pieces in contrasting styles or one longer piece that has contrasting sections.
  • We follow up the solo work with sight-reading, tonal memory and interview questions. 
  • Please let us know whether you’ll provide your own piano accompanist or if we should provide one. If we provide an accompanist, we recommend you mail us your sheet music one week prior to your audition (Attn: Music Department).

VOCAL AUDITIONS -
  • Prepare two vocal solos of differing styles (i.e., an Italian art song and an English folk tune) – perhaps pieces you’ve taken to contest in the past.
  • We follow up the solo work with sight-reading, tonal memory and interview questions. 
  • Please let us know whether you’ll provide your own piano accompanist or if we should provide one. If we provide an accompanist, we recommend you mail us your sheet music one week prior to your audition (Attn: Music Department).

These awards stipulate that recipients participate in a musical ensemble and take applied music lessons each semester they receive a music scholarship. Scholarship recipients must take Foundations of Music Theory within the first two years of receiving the scholarship. Selection of recipients and award amounts are determined by an audition and application process, which is completed by March 1 each year. Students may audition after March 1, but scholarship funds may be exhausted.
