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.
