  • If an accompanist is needed, you must mail or fax the music to the music department two full weeks prior to the audition date. Fax number is 484-323-3901.
  • Percussionists perform on at least two instruments: snare drum, timpani, keyboard percussion.
  • If not primarily a pianist, demonstrate proficiency, if any, at the piano.
  • If not primarily a vocalist, sing a song of your choice.
  • Sight read a simple melodic vocal line and a rhythmic exercise.
  • Complete a test in music fundamentals, including key signatures, basic rhythms, treble/bass clef reading, basic intervals, major/minor scale patterns, and basic triads. This test is designed for placement in the appropriate music theory class.
  • In addition to your two performance pieces, students auditioning for the music therapy program prepare an additional song to sing while playing either piano or guitar. This should be a pop tune, children’s song, or selection from a musical.
