AUDITION INFORMATION

ENTRANCE AUDITION

Applicants for bachelor degrees in music must pass an entrance audition. Auditions should demonstrate the applicant's musical and technical ability. Students who do not pass the entrance audition at the time of enrollment will not be eligible for Music Major in Good Standing status and will be placed on probationary status. Students will have two quarters in residence to pass the entrance audition. Any applied lessons taken before successfully completing the entrance exam must be taken at the 100 level. These 100 level lessons are not eligible for tuition waiver and cannot be applied towards the music major requirement.

Students from the local area are expected to audition in person; others may submit a good quality video recording.

Entrance Auditions will take place at the end of the Music Boot Camp Program September 14-20, 2014.

Please email music@lasierra.edu if you have any quesitons or would like to schedule your audition time prior to Music Boot Camp.

*Incoming freshmen that participated in the 2014 Promising Young Artist Scholarship Competition that are planning to be a music major do not need an entrance audition. Students will still need to audition for ensemble placement.
