Current UST students interested in pursuing a music major must complete a performance level audition. Performance level auditions allow the faculty to assess a student's musical skills and consider the student's potential for growth. At least three pieces of music that vary in style period, tempo and character are to be prepared. Following succesful completion of the performance level assessments, a student will be granted permission to register for applied level (MUSP 200 & 300) lessons.
In addition to the performance level audition, an interview with selected faculty members, an evaluation of piano skills, an evaluation of vocal skills, and a brief music theory and ear training assessment must be completed before a student will be considered for music major status. Assessment completion should be tracked using the rolling audition assessment checklist.
