Obtaining an ID number does not commit you to any course of study.

Book your audition or briefing

These auditions and briefings don't commit you to a particular major. They're an opportunity to discuss which major is right for you with an academic staff member.

Music Practice Auditions
You can audition in person or by Skype. You'll be required to perform one original composition on your instrument as well a short creative exercise (not theory based), and answer a few questions about your musical interests. Electronic (i.e. computer, controller or DJ-based) demonstrations are also accepted.
