The following information is provided as guidelines to the student preparing for an audition. Please note that sight-reading may be required in all performance areas.
Your audition will include a short music fundamentals written assessment, similar to this PDF example.
You will have 10 minutes to complete it. The results of the assessment will determine whether you will begin your freshman year with Music Theory I, or whether you will begin with Music Fundamentals. If you are placed in the fundamentals course, we will offer suggestions for activities to help improve your theory skills.
You will have opportunities again to take an assessment in May during New Student Advising Day, and just before the beginning of classes in the fall, and at that time you may be approved to begin Music Theory I. Regardless of your placement, you will still be able to complete the degree within four years.
Music auditions will be held in person for Fall 2023 applicants and must be completed by April 1. In order to qualify for talent award consideration, auditions must be completed by Feb. 15.
It is highly recommended that auditions are completed during the fall semester (mid-September through December).
If students are unable to attend in person due to travel distance or health concerns, a virtual audition can be arranged.
All students applying to LVC as a music major, including Music Education, Music Business, and Audio & Music Production, MUST complete an audition as part of your application.*
