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.
