Steps to Becoming a Music Major

To enter the music program at LVC, you must apply to the college and complete an audition. The audition consists of three parts:

  • Individual audition on primary instrument
  • Ear training and sight singing assessment
  • Fundamentals Assessment
  • Meeting with the Department

For more information on the process, see below.


Step 1: Audition


Step 2: Apply

*Weekday auditions are heard Monday through Friday during regular business hours, 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Auditions may be scheduled at other times by special arrangement. However, no auditions will be heard on October 6-10, November 22-26, December 11-January 19, March 3-11, and March 29-April 2. Auditions performed during the fall semester (September to early December) are highly recommended.

An alternative to an individual, weekday audition is Music Audition Day, held Saturday, January 20, 2018, with a snow date of Saturday, February 3, 2018.

All students are strongly encouraged to perform their audition in person, yet we realize that distance or other extenuating circumstances may make this impossible. Prospective students may request permission to audition via online video service (Skype) in lieu of an on-site audition. Please contact the music department administrative assistant for more information at or (717)867-6275. The Music Department may request a second on-site audition.

The audition form must be completed online.

The audition must be successfully completed before students may register for music core courses.
