How do I apply?

  • All state schools use the same general application.  You’ll want to apply to the university first with Apply Texas.

  • Once the university application is on file, you’ll want to apply to the music department and reserve an audition date.

 

What should I prepare?

  • Audition material should consist of two contrasting works.  All-state etudes, solos, and band/orchestra excerpts are recommended. 

  • Candidates will be asked to perform at least three major scales from memory (two octaves preferred) and any minor scales that they may know. 

  • There will be a sight-reading component.

 

Tips for a successful audition

  • Consider preparing material that presents you in the best possible way.  Play music that you want to play rather than what you think the committee wants to hear. 

  • Be musical, show us what you can do, it’s okay if you make a mistake!  We are looking for inspired musicians rather than technical wizards.

  • Dress like a professional, your appearance is a direct reflection of you; consequently, your appearance can say a lot about your attitude and aptitude.  Remember, this is our first and possibly only impression of you.
