Auditions at ATU

Information
All students who intend to pursue a degree in music must audition with the department before being accepted into the program. This audition will serve both as your admissions audition and your audition for a Music Performance Fellowship. Students who are interested in majoring in music, including the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Music Education, need to complete this audition. Fellowship awards for music majors are tiered based upon the quality of the audition. While it is recommended that you contact your primary professor and audition at one of the formal audition dates, these dates are not required. If the dates listed below do not work, then you may set up an individual appointment for an audition.

Audition Dates

To register for an audition, students must complete the following:

University Application
Prospective Student Form


Students will receive confirmation of their audition by e-mail. If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled dates you are welcome to contact the professor for your instrument/voice to set up an alternate audition time. Pianists who are unable to make one of the scheduled dates should contact Dr. Tim Smith.

Students who cannot audition in person because of distance from campus may submit a recorded audition. For information regarding recorded auditions, please contact auditions@atu.edu.

Early Decision Auditions
Students may audition "early" by making an appointment before November 30. Early decision fellowship offers will be made during the first week of December. Students will have 2 weeks to formally accept that offer. Early decision is best for students who know that ATU is their primary choice for college and want confirmation before the holidays. If you are interested in being considered for early admission, please contact the professor of your instrument/voice listed below or contact auditions@atu.edu.
