Auditions

Auditions are required for private lessons and some ensembles. Check the course description to see if the ensemble you want to take is open to all students or if it requires an audition.

Also, students wanting to major or minor in music should perform for a music instructor for advice and help in selecting classes. Please make an appointment for your audition as soon as possible.
