Composition Audition Requirements

Applicants to the B.M. in Composition or M.M. in Composition programs are required to submit additional materials with their Audition Form submission.

B.M. in Composition Requirements

  1. Students applying for a B.M. in Composition will be asked to submit two (2) scores of original works (with sound files, if possible). These will be uploaded as part of their Audition Form.
  2. B.M. in Composition applicants have the option to audition on an instrument to be considered for a Composition degree with a Performance emphasis. Differences between the tracks within the Composition degree can be found on the B.M. in Composition Catalog Page.
  3. B.M. in Composition applicants will then complete an interview with our Composition faculty. This will be part of the audition day process.

M.M. in Composition Requirements

Applicants must submit at least three representative original scoresĀ and recordings (if available). Scores should exhibit a variety of instrumentation and/or vocal forces. After an initial screening, selected candidates will be invited for a special interview with the composition faculty. Scores and recordings should be submitted online with the Audition Form. Hard copy of scores and recordings must be brought to the on-campus interview (or virtual auditionĀ for the 20-21 audition season).
