Piano Audition Requirements

Repertoire Selection

  • Prepare two works of contrasting styles chosen from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionist/20th century periods or any suitable jazz selection of your choice. For example: first movement of a sonata by Mozart and a piece by Ravel.
  • Memorization is strongly recommended but not required.
  • There are no time requirements on any piece, but the audition itself will not exceed 10 minutes.

Prepare one major and one harmonic minor scale of your choice.

Sight-read an excerpt of piano music that will be presented at the audition.
