Music Program Admissions & Scholarships

Audition Information

Be prepared to perform two contrasting works or movements. (10 minutes total) It is recommended that instrumentalists prepare and memorize all major scales. Memorization of solos is not required, but is preferred for piano and voice. Percussionists may perform on up to three instruments. There will be a short sight-reading test, a brief ear training test, and a theory test. A typical audition piece consists of a WSMA class A solo or other comparable work. For voice students performance in more than one language is desirable.


Scholarships for students may be awarded to incoming music majors. A minimum GPA of 3.0 and an ACT score of at least 20 is required to be eligible for a music scholarship. You must be admitted to UW-GB before you can be accepted as a music major.
