Prospective Music Students

A major in music means doing what you love and applying your skills to career goals as broad as your imagination – perform, teach, arrange, compose, produce, create, study, analyze, critique, lead.

Prospective Student Checklist

Audition Dates
In order to receive priority scholarship consideration, students must audition no later than March 1. Auditions will consist of the following:
  • Performance of prepared repertoire
  • Brief placement evaluations in music theory, ear training and piano
  • In addition, students will be asked to sight-read and/or demonstrate proficiency in scales
  • Interview with music department faculty

On all audition days, refreshments will be provided for parents and family members of prospective students. A representative of the Department of Music will be available to answer questions.

Department of Music Scholarships

In addition to UT academic scholarships, music scholarships are awarded at amounts up to $4,000 for each of four consecutive years. You must be a music major or minor to be considered for a music scholarship; for students intending to major in another area, we offer limited ensemble grants. These are awarded to students who show the potential to positively contribute to our vocal and/or instrumental ensembles. If you are interested in any of our scholarship offerings, simply follow the audition checklist at the top of this page.

Students who are awarded a music scholarship will be notified by March 15. For more information about preparing financially for your college career, please visit UT’s Financial Aid Office.
