2014 Audition Dates: Jan. 25, 2014; Feb. 15, 2014; March 22, 2014
In addition to PBA application procedures, prospective students seeking to major in music must file an application with the School of Music and Fine Arts. Approval for study in the Bachelor of Music program or the Bachelor of Arts program is based on several factors, including an audition, interview and review of previous work.
Application materials should be received and auditions completed at least six weeks before the beginning of your first term in the music major in order to ensure a place in applied music, ensembles and required music courses. Priority music scholarship consideration is given to student applications that are complete (audition and application finished) prior to March 15. No audition or interview is required for the music minor unless scholarship is requested.
Application and Scheduling
Auditions need to be scheduled when applying as a student to PBA. You must be accepted by PBA, and you must be accepted by the Department of Music as a music major. The order is not important, although students who have been accepted to PBA prior to their audition receive financial aid information much more quickly.
