Students wishing to major in music with guitar as their primary instrument may audition for acceptance into the B.A in Music-General Music Studies Option, the B.A. in Music-Music Technology Option, or the B.M.-Composition. Those who intend to minor in music performance may audition on guitar.
Auditionees should prepare material that represents them at their best. Audition repertoire should show both technical facility and expressiveness. Applicants should prepare approximately ten minutes of music consisting of contrasting pieces and should come prepared to play major, minor, and pentatonic scales, and to sightread.
Applicants are encouraged to confer with the instructor regarding audition repertoire.
Please note that guitar is currently not offered as a major instrument for the B.M.-Performance, B.M.A., or B.M.E. degrees.
