                                     MUSIC PROGRAM AUDITION GUIDELINES

At your audition, you will meet OU’s dynamic faculty and discuss your course of study. You will be evaluated
on proficiency with your instrument of choice (including voice) and considered for admission into the program.

                                          VOICE AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
      Present two songs in contrasting styles which will demonstrate a range of emotional and musical styles. The
      songs should be memorized and sung with piano accompaniment (no recorded accompaniments). Classical
      song literature and folksong arrangements such as those listed in the MSVMA Solo and Ensemble list and
      the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) high school audition requirements would be
      considered appropriate. Foreign language songs are also appropriate, but not required. A musical theatre
      selection may be substituted for one of the above, if it is a strong suit for the singer. Singers may bring their
      own accompanist or perform with one of our staff accompanists. Printed copies of the audition pieces must
      be in a 3-ring binder with a non-glare surface if our accompanist is utilized. There is no fee for using our
      accompanist. You must request these services with your application.

                     GENERAL INSTRUMENTAL AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
      Please prepare a movement of a sonata or concerto or two contrasting etudes. Instrumentalists may bring
      their own accompanist or perform with one of our staff accompanists. Printed copies of the audition pieces
      must be in a 3-ring binder with a non-glare surface if our accompanist is utilized. There is no fee for using
      our accompanist. You must request these services with your application.

                                          PIANO AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
      Present one selection from the Baroque era, one first-movement from a classical sonata and one free choice
      from the Romantic through 21st century. All these pieces must be memorized at audition.

      Be prepared for sight reading and playing scales and arpeggios.
Bring with you a resume/CV and a list of repertoire you have learned prior to your OU audition.

                      PERCUSSION AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
Please prepare at least one mallet solo using 2 or 4 mallets, one snare drum solo at the rudimental or
orchestral level, and one timpani solo. Be prepared for sight reading.

                     COMPOSITION AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
Bring a portfolio of compositions, if possible, and be prepared for an interview. You must also perform an
instrument or voice audition.
