Auditions at ATU 

Auditions for Prospective Music Majors:

If you are interested in auditioning to be admitted as a music major, please visit our auditions site. This audition will serve both as your admissions audition and your audition for a Music Performance Scholarship. Students who are interested in majoring in music, including the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Music Education, need to complete this audition for admission into these programs. Scholarship awards for music majors are tiered based upon the quality of the audition. It is recommended that you contact your primary professor to discuss an audition date as well as what material you should prepare for the audition. 


Auditions for Non-Major Fellowships:

All students majoring in a discipline other than music are welcome to join the Band of Distinction.  Students with exceptional talent and experience may audition for a Scholarship by setting up an appointment with Dr. Dan Belongia, Director of Bands (  Auditions are set up via email, and scheduled throughout the spring semester.  All students must be accepted to Arkansas Tech University before receiving an offer for a scholarship.

The Arkansas Band of Distinction is open to all students of all majors.  You do not need to audition unless you would like to be considered for a scholarship.  If you would like just to participate in ABD, then you need only fill out our mailing list  form.  We will contact you on how to sign up for the band.
