Audition & 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 here (select your instrument from the list).

Music education applicants also will have a 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.
