All official audition dates for Fall 2017 admission have now passed. If you still wish to be considered for admission to the School of Music, please contact your appropriate applied faculty member or program coordinator.
Any student that desires to become a Music major must perform an entrance audition for acceptance into the School of Music. These auditions are also used for scholarship consideration, and no student will be considered for admission into the program or considered for a School of Music scholarship without this audition.
- Prospective students must request a day to perform the audition using the form below. Auditions for wind, percussion, string, keyboard and vocal applicants are held on selected Saturdays throughout the year on the campus of Sam Houston State University. The dates available for School of Music auditions are listed above.
We strongly encourage you to schedule an audition on one of these listed dates. Students who are unable to attend the audition days listed may not qualify for scholarship consideration. In the event you are absolutely unable to audition on one of the official audition days, each individual discipline may be able to schedule an on-campus audition by calling (936) 294-1360. This is not guaranteed, and is left up to the discretion of the individual discipline.
Please note: Due to the number of vocal applicants, private auditions are strongly discouraged and will only be held under special circumstances.
- Audition selections should meet the criteria found on the Audition Material page.
- It is important for prospective students to contact an applied music instructor from the appropriate area (Winds, Percussion, Strings, Voice, Keyboard). Introduce yourself to the instructor, ask any questions you have related to either the entrance audition itself or the music program at Sam Houston State University.
The School of Music accepts qualified candidates as music majors. Students not intending to be a music major do not need to audition.
