Undergraduates

All undergraduate students seeking entry into the School of Music will perform one musical selection of their choir before several music faculty members. The music doesn’t have to be memorized and can be of any musical style. However, your selection should adequately display your abilities and be appropriate to a university setting. Applicants will also sight-read a brief passage.

Every student who auditions is considered for a Music Performance Grant. This grant ranges from $500-$2,000 per semester based on the student’s ability to contribute to one or more assigned ensembles or to provide piano accompaniment to other students.

Students auditioning on the days listed above can also take a written exam in music theory and music history in order to be considered for additional scholarship money of up to $1,000 per semester. This scholarship is known as the Competitive Music Scholarship.

Graduates

General Degrees: Applicants seeking entry to the MA: Music, MA: Worship, or MA: Musicology should perform two works of contrasting style before a panel of music faculty members. Live auditions are always preferred, but recordings of a live performance will be accepted when distance from campus is too great.

Performance Degrees: Applicants seeking admission to the MM: Instrumental Performance, MM: Piano Performance & Pedagogy, or MM: Vocal Performance & Pedagogy will submit a list of performed repertoire and present a live audition before a panel of music faculty. Recordings of a live performance will be accepted for conditional admission pending presentation of a live audition before the completion of the first semester of study.

MM Conducting: Applicants will come to campus the semester prior to enrollment and conduct an ensemble rehearsal as their live audition. If an applicant cannot come to campus, he or she may submit a recorded audition for admission into the MAM program until such time as they can give a live audition on campus.
