Music Composition

Whether you are applying for the Music Composition emphasis or Composition for Screen Arts emphasis in the music major, you must audition for the music faculty in your primary performance medium. Your audition will be reviewed along with your other materials for the Composition application. 

To find out the requirements for your performance audition, return to the Music Audition Requirements page, select your performance area, and follow the given instructions. Those auditioning for the Composition major with an instrumental performance focus are required to participate in an interview with the music faculty. Participating in a live audition day, either virtually or in-person, will fulfill this requirement. If you are unable to participate in a live audition day, please reach out to the Fine Arts Recruitment Office to schedule your interview. 

The supplemental Fine Arts application for the Composition emphases is split into two separate applications, depending on your primary performance area. You must select if you are applying to the composition program as an instrumentalist or as a vocalist within your supplemental application.
