Frequently Asked Questions
Is an audition required for every degree at Ithaca?
Yes, except the Bachelor of Music in Composition. In this program students have the option of having a major instrument (Instrumental or Vocal Emphasis), or just focus on composition (Normal Course Plan). With the Instrumental or Vocal Emphasis, an audition is required along with the composition interview. With the Normal Course Plan, only a composition interview is required. In either case, an interview must be scheduled on one of the on-campus dates, and you must submit at least two scores for consideration by the composition faculty.
