Program Requirements

Bachelor of Music: Music Education

All Music Education applicants must submit prescreening materials (if required for the applicant's instrument) and complete a performance audition on their primary instrument. Prescreening and audition repertoire requirements may be found on this page. (select your instrument from the list).

Music education applicants ALSO will have a separate music education audition consisting of the following four components:

  • Sight‐singing diagnostic*: sing simple melodies at sight.
  • Keyboard diagnostic*: sight-read simple piano excerpts.
  • An interview consisting of questions relevant to your interests in music teaching and learning among children and adolescents.
  • Performance of a prepared piece on your major instrument, chosen from your audition repertoire**.

*The diagnostic exams are just to help determine what your entry level skills are in these areas.

**All Music Education applicants must prepare the full prescreening (if applicable) and audition repertoire requirements for their primary instrument. 

Fall 2024 Audition Formats

All applicants whose program requires an audition are asked to audition on campus. Virtual auditions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants should wait to receive their prescreening results before contacting the Office of Music Admission about virtual audition options.
