All School of Music applicants must audition on an instrument or voice. To audition, first complete a School of Music Admission/Scholarship Application and submit an online letter of recommendation from a qualified music teacher. Once the application materials have been submitted to the School of Music, the student may either schedule a time to perform a live audition at BYU or submit a recorded audition.
Each studio has its own preferences for submitting recorded auditions. Please check the audition requirements for each studio through the link below. For auditions uploaded to YouTube, please make sure the video is not listed as private and that the link is emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the date listed.
Live auditions are held in the Harris Fine Arts Center. For driving directions and hotel information, click here. During live auditions, it may not be possible for the judges to hear all the prepared music. Often, judges will request representative sections of audition pieces. Only those auditioning are allowed in the audition studio. For live auditions, piano accompaniment is not required, but the student may bring an accompanist if they like. Applicants for degrees other than the BA in Music or Music Performance must audition for their given instrument and submit additional materials for their prospective major.
