Audition Day Schedule

It's not just a 10-minute appearance. We strive to make you feel at home and welcome you to the department from the get-go so set aside the whole day.

8:15 Check-in, receive audition time in Schroeder Lobby at the Green Music Center
8:30 Welcome by the audition panel and a tour of the Green Music Center led by Brooke Tester. Parents are welcome to accompany you on the tour. The auditions however are closed.
A Music Theory Placement Test will be given on a drop in basis throughout the day. This test is designed as a diagnostic tool to make sure we place people in the correct theory class when they get here. It's a short test about 20 minutes, on fundamentals. It does not factor into your acceptance to the program.
