Prepare fifteen to twenty minutes of organ literature you have thoroughly studied. Include a work of J. S. Bach and a romantic or contemporary composition. Choose pieces that you and your teacher agree are within your present musical and technical grasp. Memorization is neither required nor discouraged. You will have an opportunity to become acquainted with the organ you will be playing before your audition.
In certain cases, a student may be admitted who has had no organ study but does have a strong background in piano. In such individual cases, a full piano audition is permitted instead of an organ audition.
Applicants to Performance with Teacher Certification (Curriculum B) will also be scheduled for an information session with the Department of Music Education.
