Undergraduate students majoring in Music Composition or Commercial Music must submit a portfolio of their compositions in addition to performing an audition on either an instrument or voice. The portfolio requirements are quite flexible; here are some guidelines:
Please go to this website, DecisionDesk, register, and submit your portfolio materials to University of Miami Frost School of Music by February 1st.
*Outline your compositional activities. For example, if your high school has a composition class, outline the scope of the class. If you have attended a summer program in which you have taken a composition course, elaborate on the types of activities that were included in the class.
*Present representative samples of several music scores that you have composed. The scores should be notated correctly. You may also upload audio files, if you have them, of your compositions.
In addition to the above:
*Submit representative samples of music scores and recordings.
*List college theory and composition courses that you have taken. If possible, provide a syllabus from the course(s).
