Entering Freshmen and Transfer Students for the Composition Program:
Upload 3 to 4 representative samples of music scores that you have composed and one document that lists links to recordings of those pieces Scores should be your original works (not arrangements). The links listed on the document should be to audio files of your compositions if available (such as Youtube, Soundcloud, or your own website). It is preferable that these audio files are recordings of performances, but you may also submit MIDI renditions if necessary.
Entering Freshmen and Transfer Students for the Commercial Music and Production Program:
Upload representative samples of several music scores that you have composed. Scores should be original works. Arrangements of existing compositions and/or songs (vocal or instrumental) will be considered only if notated scores and audio files of arrangements are included.
