Please carefully review the specific prescreen and audition requirements for the degree program you are applying to using the links below.
The programs and instruments listed below require an accompanist. If your instrument requires an accompanist, MSM will provide one for you at your audition at no cost.
If your instrument is not listed above, your audition will be unaccompanied.
While we would love to welcome all auditionees to our NYC campus for an in-person audition, MSM recognizes that traveling to NYC may not be possible for some applicants. Therefore, virtual auditions may be available to you, depending on your program of study. Please review the eligibility requirements below.
Recorded auditions are due February 1.
Regardless of your standard eligibility for a virtual audition, if you are unable to attend an in-person audition, please email the office of admission at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if a virtual audition accommodation may be possible for your unique circumstances.
A strong audition is the primary factor in any successful admission result, but it is not the only point of consideration. The MSM Admissions Committee reviews all required application materials before determining admissibility.
Therefore, admission results are made available no later than April 1, provided that we have received all of your required materials. We will email you when your admission result is available for viewing in your Admission Portal. Admissions results are not disclosed over the phone.
