Learn about your audition process here.
In response to the global events of 2020, and our subsequent inability to hold live in-person auditions, Manhattan School of Music will only hold recorded and virtual auditions in 2021.
Prescreening requirements have not been affected by this change. Applicants to all areas with a prescreening requirement will be asked to include prescreening materials in their application, which is due December 1, 2020. Prescreening decisions will be released on December 18, 2020.
May auditions will be held for select programs. The application will open on April 15, and all materials are due by May 5. Please reach out to admissions to see if you are eligible for these auditions and for any further details.
MSM has creatively adapted to offer a modified audition process that will allow our applicants to be fully considered for both admission and scholarship.
Applicants who will participate in a live, virtual Zoom audition will receive more information about their audition schedule on December 18.

A strong audition is the main factor in any successful admission result, but it is not the only factor. The MSM Admissions Committee reviews all required application materials before determining admissibility. To review the required materials for your desired major and intended degree program, please visit our How to Apply to the College page.
Admissions results are available no later than April 1, provided that we have received all of your required materials. We will send you an email to let you know when your admission result is available. Admissions results are not available over the phone.
