The Music Department requires an audition for all students who wish to pursue the music major at Southwestern. A prospective student’s audition serves both as an admission and a scholarship audition.

Students who are not admitted into the major program on the basis of the audition are welcome to participate in all activities of the Music Department for which they qualify; if they still wish to pursue the major they may re-audition for the Department after they begin their studies at Southwestern. Please also note that admission into the major program does not guarantee a music scholarship.

For detailed repertoire requirements for music auditions, please see the page on music scholarships.
