The requirements outlined below are for pianists who wish to be considered for the Accompanying Assistantship.
Accompanying Assistantship Audition Requirements
Pianists applying for an Accompanying Assistantship should upload a recording to the box folder with the repertoire requirements listed below. Next, email Music Admissions with a list of pieces or movements that you plan to play to be considered for the assistantship and registered for a follow-up interview. The virtual follow-up interview will then take place on one of the audition dates via Zoom after the video audition has been received. Applicants should have access to a piano or 88-note keyboard and a printer or device to read music as sight-reading will be required during the follow-up interview.
1. A solo movement of the applicant’s choice (memorization not required).
2. One movement from any string sonata or chamber work by Beethoven or Brahms.
