MM Composition Auditions

Audition Requirements for the Master of Music: Composition Major

Applicants for the MM in Composition must submit scores and standard audio CDs, MP3s, WAV files, or an online link of two compositions for contrasting instrumentation along with a repertory list of all compositions. If submitting the files electronically, please email a high quality MP3 file (160kbps at 44.1 kHz sample rate) or a link to a YouTube recording along with a PDF file of the scores to the Graduate Music Secretary; files too large to email should be shared through Dropbox or Google Drive.

On the selected audition date, a campus visit to include an interview with the Director of Graduate Studies in Music is strongly encouraged. Contact the Graduate Music Secretary for alternate arrangements.
