Do I need to prepare for the theory placement and piano placement exams?

The undergraduate theory placement and piano placement exams will determine the theory or piano course a student will take during their first semester as a music student, and these placement exams do not have any bearing on whether or not a student will pass their audition.

If an auditioning student has experience playing piano, it is recommended that they are prepared to play a piece or excerpt that displays their ability.

If a student has no prior piano ability or theory knowledge, they will be placed in courses during their fall semester that will work on foundational and rudimentary skills in these areas.
