School of Music Admission Requirements
- Prepare an audition of 45-55 minutes containing representative and major works of the repertoire.
- All piano solo works submitted for audition should be performed from memory.
- The only acceptable recorded audition will be of the auditioning student’s most recent degree recital, accompanied by a copy of the recital program.
- An on-campus audition is preferable; in the case of a recorded audition, full departmental admission will be granted only after the candidate has performed a live audition before the Keyboard Faculty during his/her first semester of study at UNC.
- In any case of discrepancy of performance quality between a candidate’s recorded and live audition, the live audition will prevail in considerations regarding candidacy of a given student to the keyboard degree program being sought.
- In all live auditions, faculty will examine the sight-reading skill of auditioning candidates. Master's auditioning candidates’ functional piano skills will also be tested in live auditions.
