Music Audition Information


  1. Complete the Department of Music application for each instrument you wish to audition for and return at least three (3) weeks prior to the audition date requested.  You will receive your audition day schedule approx. 7-10 days prior to the audition date you selected.
  2. Acceptance into our music program and scholarship awards are contingent upon acceptance by GVSU. It is best to apply early so that you receive word of your GVSU acceptance by your audition date.

  3. Students interested in music scholarships and music honors scholarships are advised to audition early. Honors Scholarship awards are expected to conclude at the March auditions.

Audition Requirements

Please Note:

  • Although we provide excellent accompanists for our enrolled students, accompaniment for instrumental auditions is not expected and is not provided. We will, however provide pianists for auditioning vocalists.
  • Each student auditioning will be scheduled to take a Theory Placement and Sight-Singing Placement Test.  (GRCC Transfers find information here.)
  • If you have 2 or more years of piano experience, you will be scheduled for a Piano Placement Test on the same day, for which you will be asked to play a prepared piece.











Composition as applied instrument is for secondary study. Students must select voice or an instrument as their primary area.  For all composition study inquiries please contact Professor Bill Ryan at
