Auditions

Registrations for auditions are now open! Students intending to complete a Major or Minor in Performance must pass an audition. For enrolment in Semester 1 2018 you are required to do a live audition or upload a digital audition so it can be reviewed as soon as possible.

More information on how to register for a School of Music audition.

Tips for a successful audition:

  • Select music that best demonstrates your technical and musical abilities. It is better to play a simple piece well, than to struggle with techniques above your skill level.
  • Be prepared – practice – put in the time. Work with your private teacher on your audition pieces. The more comfortable you are playing your audition selections the less nervous you will be.
  • Perform your pieces for others prior to your audition day. Record these performances. This is an
    opportunity to learn and improve, even if you are playing for friends and relatives.
  • Practice your sight reading, and ask your teacher to assist you with sight reading exercises.
  • Confirm with the School of Music via email: music@anu.edu.au once you have completed uploading the audition materials.
