AUDITION INFORMATION

 

Prospective students planning to pursue music as a major must audition for the piano faculty. Those wishing to audition for a Bachelor's or Master's degree (and an undergraduate keyboard scholarship or a graduate assistantship) should ideally do so by early March of 2017 to receive full consideration, although we do schedule later auditions if necessary. Our Piano Audition Days are Saturday, Feb. 11th, 2017 (after the high school piano competition), Friday, Feb. 17, 2017, and Friday, February 24, 2017. In the event that none of the dates above is feasible for an audition, please contact one of our piano faculty members to assist you in scheduling another date and time.

SCHOLARSHIPS

 

Please read the "Audition Information" page on the Music Department website. On  this page there is a "Request an Audition" link which includes the "Scholarship Form." Applicants may complete the online registration to request an audition date. The Scholarship Form must be downloaded and mailed to the address listed.     

Undergraduate piano scholarships are offered only to those who declare piano as their major instrument. Those who wish to pursue music minors, or for whom piano is not their primary instrument, are not eligible to receive piano scholarships. These students may, however, still enroll in piano lessons and audition to receive scholarship funding through participation in one of OSU's vocal or instrumental ensembles. For more information regarding these ensembles, please access their pages through the Music Department Website.
