All graduate programs in brass performance require pre-screening, so your application must be submitted by the Priority deadline of December 1. Pre-screening materials will be submitted online using Acceptd. Pre-screening selections must include two contrasting works (or movements of works) of standard literature with piano accompaniment, plus one etude and three excerpts, as specified below.

On-Campus Auditions

Students selected for an audition will be contacted by the appropriate applied faculty member. Graduate brass auditions will be held on January 11 and January 25, 2020. (In special circumstances, alternate audition dates can be arranged.)

The on-campus audition should include two standard works. Please choose works not submitted for pre-screening. Applicants can play with accompaniment for the on-campus audition, but it is not required. (Applicants choosing an accompanist are responsible for all accompanist fees.) All applicants will be asked to sight read at the audition.
