Undergraduate and graduate audition requirements


  • You should prepare to play all 12 major scales; however, one or two scales will be asked.
  • You should include something lyrical and something technical. Suggested solos include: Guilmant - Morceau Symphonique, Barat – Andante and Allegro, Rimsky-Korsakov – Concerto, David – Concertino, Grondahl - Concerto
    Certainly you are welcome to play something different but please do not play your band music. You are welcome to use your all-state or regional etudes if you would like.
  • You can play a solo, etudes, or excerpts so long as you demonstrate a range of styles.
