Virtual Audition Process

If you choose a Virtual Audition option, your audition process will be in two parts.

  • Part 1 - Submission of video recordings of required repertoire in your MyMountaineer portal.  
    • Please review these guidelines for recording your audition videos. Your recordings are due one week before your chosen Saturday audition dates (Feb 3, Feb 10, and Mar 2). 
    • Under extenuating circumstances, the student may choose a custom virtual audition date with our faculty. If so, the student should submit their videos one week before your arranged date.
  • Part 2 - Online Zoom session (the Zoom link will be provided in advance of your audition day) 
    • You will play your technique requirements for our faculty, sight-read* a short musical excerpt, and have a brief conversation with our faculty so that we can get to know you better. 
    • You will complete your aural skills assessments during the audition. The aural skills assessment will include pitch matching, singing a simple scale, a short memory recall of a melody, and rhythmic sight-reading. 
    • Music Education, Music Therapy, and Composition/Theory Students will complete their degree interview on this day. 
    • The Music Theory Placement Exam can be completed at home in advance.   

 *Since your sight-reading music will be shared with you during the online audition, it is important to use a computer or a tablet where you will be able to read the examples easily.

Zoom Audio Tips:

  • Please review this video tutorial on how to set up your Zoom audio settings in preparation for your Zoom audition.
  • Some Windows PC computers may still encounter audio issues after changing their settings as instructed. If so, please visit this Zoom's support page for additional instructions. A few days before your audition, it's a good idea to do a playing test with a friend or family member on Zoom to determine if there are any issues with your audio. If you are not able to resolve your audio issue, please contact Dr. Soo Goh (Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs) for additional assistance.
