To prepare for the audition, applicants should choose to play repertoire they feel represents them at their best. We would like to hear contrasting materials that show both technical facility and music expressiveness. This may be two different pieces (solos or etudes), or two movements of a large work.

In addition, auditionees should be prepared to play all major scales in two octaves, either slurred or tongued upon request, and the chromatic scale from low C, ascending and descending, for three octaves.

For directions about formally applying to Penn State, please visit Application Process. Once the application has been submitted, please schedule an audition by completing the online scheduling form.
