Audition Requirements

  • Applicants should prepare 2-3 pieces or movements of no longer than 15 minutes demonstrating their skill on the instrument they wish to study.
  • Select each piece from the Western Art Music repertoire (except for electric guitar and bass).
  • Pieces should be of contrasting style, period and composer (e.g. works from the Baroque, Romantic and 20th century repertoires).
  • Recordings must be made in a one take, unedited video format.

Repertoire presented at AMEB Grade 7 standard for instrumentalists and Grade 5 for singers, generally makes for a competitive audition. These standards are given as an indication only, to guide your choice of audition repertoire.  AMEB examinations are not a pre-requisite for entry to Practical Music 1.

Placement Interviews

All successful Wind, Brass, String and Percussion students must meet with the respective Head of Area prior to the start of Semester to discuss ensemble placements  - this is an essential component to undertaking Practical Music 1. Similarly, successful Keyboard and Voice students will need new student interviews. The Heads of Instrument Areas are listed on our Faculty website, and you will be contacted only after receipt of your successful audition notification regarding this requirement.

Submit audition application via SlideRoom. There is no additional cost in doing so.
