Music Audition Information

  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.
