Audition Guidelines

You will complete a live audition with Berklee faculty members virtually via the Zoom video chat platform. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your current level of musicianship, your potential for growth, and your readiness to succeed in Berklee College of Music's learning environment. We focus on performance, improvisation, sight-reading, and ear training because we seek students who are prepared to study and master all elements of their craft.
