Graduate Audition Requirements

Auditions are held on campus and recorded auditions are accepted via DecisionDesk. They are scheduled after all Frost School of Music application materials are received and complete.

The following programs require a pre-screening by December 1. This must be uploaded to DecisionDesk:
Classical Flute
All Jazz Instrumentalists/Vocalists
Choral Conducting
Instrumental/Orchestral Conducting
Keyboard Degrees

Pre-screening

Applicants to Classical Flute, Conducting, Jazz, and Keyboard Performance degrees must pass a pre-screening. Your pre-screening will not be reviewed by faculty until all application materials and applicable fees are received.

Faculty will review the pre-screening submissions and an invitation to audition will be extended to selected applicants. If selected to audition, you will set up an on-campus audition with the Program Director for your instrument/voice.

Pre-screening submissions will be accepted online only. All submissions should include both audio and video.

Please submit your audition materials online through our DecisionDesk drop box.  DecisionDesk accepts the following file formats:

Video (MPEG, MPG, MP4, OGG, MOV, AVI, WMV, M4V, VOB)
Audio (MP3, M4A, OGG, AIFF, WMA, WAV, AAC)
Image (JPEG, JPG, PNG, GIF)
Document (PDF, TXT, RTF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, SIB, MUS)
Individual files can be as large as 5GB, but keep in mind that larger files may take some time to upload.  Upload speed is dependent upon both file size and speed of the internet connection.  Please be patient, as files larger than 50MB can take some time.  Be sure to upload files using a stable internet connection, and make sure the computer does not go into sleep or hibernate mode while a file is uploading.  For technical support with your DecisionDesk application, please visit http://support.decisiondesk.com/ or contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
