Guitar Audition Requirements

Auditions are approximately 10 to 15 minutes long (doctoral auditions are approximately 30 minutes in long). You will choose the first work and the faculty will choose a second and possibly third work from the audition repertoire list you provide. Works originally written for the guitar are generally preferred and in the case of Doctoral and Professional Studies applicants, strongly recommended.

Below you’ll find specific audition information for each type of degree offered. Please consider the specific works listed as guidelines, not requirements.
