Creating Your Audition Video

Create a video of your music audition and post it online using ZeeMee, YouTube, Vimeo or another video platform. At the beginning of your video, please be sure to say your name, the music program you are applying for (e.g., music education), and the music you are performing for your audition. Before recording your audition video, please review our audition requirements, listed by degree and performance area. After recording and uploading your video, copy and paste the link to your audition video into the music audition form.

Posting Your Audition Video Online

The Department of Music at UT is a partner of ZeeMee, a social media platform that allows prospective students to be more self-expressive with their college applications. In addition to the music audition video, please feel free to include anything in your ZeeMee profile that you think will help us learn more about you.
