The School of Music offers Individual (MUSI) flute instruction. Students who wish to study through the School must perform a live audition before a faculty jury or submit a video recording of the required audition repertoire. After applying to the School of Music through the Acceptd™ application service, you will schedule an audition with the following prepared materials.

All applicants will perform the first movement of either the Mozart G-Major or D-Major concerto including a cadenza from memory. In addition, candidates are to compliment this concerto movement with approximately 15 to 20 minutes of repertoire including: sonata or sonatina movements, French contest works, and unaccompanied pieces, and orchestral excerpts.

Live Audition
Contact the school of music and Dr. Luce to schedule an audition during one of the regular audition dates or during a time when you wish to visit the University of Arizona. A live audition is preferable as it also allows you the opportunity to visit the campus, meet current students, and discuss the program with the professor.

Recorded Audition
Prepare an unedited video recording of the repertoire outlined above including a memorized performance of the Mozart concerto movement. Record any accompanied works with piano. Additionally, include five minutes of any technique exercise(s) of your choosing in 6 different major and 6 different minor keys (e.g. Taffanel et Gaubert 17 Daily Exercises, Moyse Daily Exercises, etc.). The recording may be physically delivered on digital media or uploaded to Acceptd™ or YouTube™. You may also submit audio or video recordings via email or a file sharing service.
