Graduate Audition Information

Master's degree applicants in MM Performance and MM Conducting applicants must audition in their major performing medium before being recommended for admission to the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music. While it is not required for admission, students planning to study applied music while in any graduate music program must also audition. 

For students residing an inconvenient distance from Kent, an audition recording (video) may be uploaded or URL's to video provided on the Graduate Studies Application.

Conducting applicants should submit a preliminary video recording directly to the professor in their area of specialization as outlined in the audition requirements of each specific area (Band, Orchestral, Choral). If necessary, a live audition will be scheduled at a later date through the appropriate conductor.
