Auditions - Music Majors and Minors
Auditions are required for all applicants planning to major or minor in music.
Following the audition, students will receive written notification of acceptance.
Upon acceptance, the student should contact the Department of Music office as soon as possible to arrange for course advising. Call 256-824-6436 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a student is not accepted, the student should consider pursuing another major, but is welcome to audition for ensembles and may enroll in 100-level studio instruction. Please note that 100-level studio instruction does not count toward music major degree requirements. In order to graduate with a degree in music, the student must complete a minimum of six semesters of 200-level and 400-level studio instruction.
Students are allowed to audition a second time if they are not accepted on the first audition.
The Department of Music holds scholarship auditions each winter for the following school year. These scholarship auditions also serve as admission auditions, and students are encouraged to attend these if possible. Priority auditions for students entering in Fall, 2013, will be on Saturday, January 19, 2013 and February 16, 2013. To reserve an audition time, fill out the online form below.
