  • Q. Is it possible to audition at a regional site or via a recording?

    A. All Early Action (EA) applicants who are approved to audition after a review of their video prescreens MUST audition on campus during the EA audition date which will be in December. For Regular Decision (RD) applicants an in-person audition is preferred and is required for some instruments/genres. Most classical applicants can audition at a regional site or via a video recording submitted online as part of the Frost supplemental application. The Frost School of Music offers auditions at several major cities across the U.S. Contemporary and jazz applicants should plan on auditioning on campus if approved after a review of their prescreening. In some cases, a Skype audition may be approved by faculty and contemporary applicants can audition at a regional site in Los Angeles. 

  • Q. How do I change my audition date?

    A. If you’ve submitted your Frost School of Music supplemental application with your audition date choice and then realize you need to change your date, please contact the Office of Admission at the Frost School of Music at (305-284-6168). There will be a $25 charge to change a confirmed audition date.

  • Q. How many movements of a piece should I prepare?

    A. Audition requirements can be found here. All specific audition requirement questions should be directed to your program faculty.

  • Q. Where do I upload my portfolio?

    A. If your program requires a portfolio (composition, media writing & production, music engineering technology), please upload your portfolio with your Frost supplemental application. Check the Audition & Portfolio Requirements page for specific requirements. Remember, a program portfolio is not the same as a video prescreening on your instrument/voice. Applicants to the programs listed above must submit the prescreen and a portfolio.
