Stacks Image 7
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.

Prepare two contrasting works, one demonstrating technical proficiency and another, lyricism. Plan to perform the works with piano at the audition. Select one work from each group:

Group A
  • J. S. BACH: Sonata in E Major, movements I and II
  • J. S. BACH: Sonata in E-flat Major, movements I and II
  • J. S. BACH: Sonata in C Major, movements I and II
  • G. F. HANDEL: Sonata in G Major, movements I and II
Group B
  • GABRIEL FAURE: Fantaisie, Op. 79
  • LOUIS GANNE: Andante et Scherzo
  • BENJAMIN GODARD: Suite de Trois Morceaux, movements I and II
  • GEORGES ENESCO: Cantabile et Presto
Live Audition
Contact the School of Music and Dr. Luce to schedule an audition during one of the regular audition dates or at a time when you wish to visit the campus. Your chosen audition repertoire may be performed from memory. You will also be asked to perform scales and arpeggios from memory as well as sight read.

Recorded Audition
Although a live audition is preferable, prospective students may prepare an unedited recording of the required works with piano and include performance of six major and minor scales, six major and minor arpeggios, and six two-octave scales of your choice. 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.
