Live auditions at The School of Music are strongly recommended for all applicants and are preferred over recorded auditions.
However, we realize that it is not always possible for applicants to audition live.
If you are unable to audition live and wish to send a recorded audition instead, please read carefully the following guidelines:
-HD quality and digital sound are required.
-Each work (or a movement from a work) must be performed live in one take. Actual playing must not be edited.
-Pianists must play from memory
-The repertoire requirements are identical to those for a live audition.
-Piano accompaniment is mandatory if required by the repertoire.
-Do not mail CDs, DVDs, or any other digital materials. The video should be uploaded to YouTube as a "private" video. Please do not protect the video with any password.
-The video should be uploaded no later than the formal deadline, May 1, 2018.
