    Select the date below to schedule your individual 10-minute appointment time for each instrument you will be submitting an audition. If you have not had any previous meetings or lessons (virtual or in person) with your studio faculty, you are strongly encouraged to schedule one of these faculty appointments on the dates provided. Music Therapy applicants must also schedule an interview time by emailing Stacy Ash at sash@ku.edu.

    Audition Instructions:

    • Visit the "What to Prepare" page at music.ku.edu/audition-prep.
    • Prepare and practice your 10-minute video audition pieces, minus the sight reading.
    • Record a final video submission.
    • Upload your video as "unlisted" in YouTube prior to your scheduled faculty appointment. For help on uploading an unlisted video, watch this video.
    • After you have uploaded your video to YouTube, email the URL to sash@ku.edu.
    • Attend your faculty appointment via Zoom.
    • Final audition decisions are typically emailed within two weeks after your appointment.

    If you are unable to attend a faculty appointment by Zoom on Feb. 13 or Feb. 20, please contact Stacy Ash for an alternate date at sash@ku.edu. Please note, there is a priority date of March 1 for music scholarship consideration.
