Music Department Audition Process




Those interested in joining us as Music or Music Education majors must audition for the Music faculty.  Audition Days for those wishing to enter the Department of Music in the Fall 2015 semester will be held: 


February 16, 2015

March 16, 2015

April 13, 2015


For all auditions, the process consists of three components:

  1. Performance Audition:  We ask that you prepare 2 short pieces of contrasting styles to perform.
  2. Interview:  After you perform we’ll have a brief chat with you so that we can get to know more about you and you more about us.  Feel free to ask us any questions you may have about our program.
  3. Diagnostic Testing:  You will also take two short tests in Music Theory and Aural Skills.  These tests are simply a way for us to see where you are in your study of music and are not a factor in determining your acceptance in the music department.


Please contact Dr. David Samson, Music Department Chair at 215-248-7164 or to schedule an audition.
