Brass Audition Requirements

Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Professional Studies Certificate auditions are approximately 10 minutes in length. Doctoral and Artist Diploma auditions are approximately 20 minutes in length. You will choose the first work and the faculty will choose a second and possibly third work from the audition repertoire list you provide. Brass auditions are unaccompanied, and you should not bring your own accompanist. For undergraduate-level Horn and Trumpet additions, knowledge of transposition/clefs may be required where applicable.
