Undergraduate

Prospective students should apply to the University before submitting an audition request. Visit the undergraduate admissions website for information about the general freshman and transfer application process. To inquire about late admission, contact Skip Snead, director of the School of Music.

To audition, students must submit an online audition request here. The request must be received two weeks before the audition date to guarantee a place. Undergraduate students should prepare a piece by J.S. Bach and a piece of contrasting style for the organ audition. Sight-reading a hymn and a major scale will also be expected. Applicants who are interested in a church position should inform Dr. Faythe Freese at the interview.

Graduate

Graduate applicants must complete both an audition and an interview. Applicants for the MM and DMA in organ performance should prepare three works of contrasting style for the audition. One of the three works should be a major Bach work such as a prelude and fugue or a trio sonata. Sight-reading will also be tested. Applicants who are interested in a church position should inform Dr. Faythe Freese at the interview.
