Additional Guidelines by Instrument

Some instrumental departments require an additional demonstration of technical abilities such as scales, arpeggios, dynamics, etc. In addition, each instrument requires a different setup for an online audition, depending on input needs and accompaniment. Below, you can learn about any additional requirements and review the audition day checklist for your instrument.

Please be completely set up before you check in for your online audition. Familiarize yourself with the general audition requirements listed under Audition Guidelines before reading about the instrument-specific requirements.

If you have any questions regarding your audition, please review the Audition Guidelines page, or contact us at or 617-747-2579.
