Scheduling the Audition/Interview
All auditions and/or interviews are scheduled by completing the Hartt Supplemental Application or through Acceptd. Hartt Admissions cannot schedule auditions/interviews by phone. Applicants will select their preferred audition/interview date and will receive an Audition/Interview Confirmation letter via e-mail confirming the audition date and schedule.
WHO NEEDS TO AUDITION/INTERVIEW
Applicants to all degree programs will audition and/or interview on Hartt's scheduled audition/interview dates. Please review the tables below to find out if you will audition, interview, or both. Only graduate level conducting, music education, artist diploma, and doctoral applicants will need to submit preliminary recordings.
Note: All graduate conducting, Artist Diploma, and Doctor of Musical Arts applicants must audition/interview in person on one of the established on-campus audition days due to the level of application and entrance testing requirements. For the same reason, PhD applicants must come to campus for interviewing and testing on a date to be arranged by the Music Education division.
*In some cases, an informal "interview" takes place during the allotted audition time to allow faculty an opportunity to get to know the applicant.
