Audition Requirements

  • All auditions must be no longer than 5 minutes in length.

  • All auditions must be submitted via video. 

  • Audition videos must be continuous (major scale and excerpt performed in one take) and may not be cut or edited together.

  • We recommend you record 2-4 times in a quiet space, take a break, then listen to select your final audition video to upload.

  • Auditions do not need to be memorized, and accompaniment is not necessary.

Requirements differ by instrument, and are flexible to accommodate different skill levels. Select from your instrument group below to view the audition requirements.
