Bachelor of Music

  • Two solo movements of contrasting styles from the major concerto and sonata repertoire.
  • One Charlier Etude OR any etude of comparable difficulty from another etude book
  • Three excerpts from the standard orchestral audition repertoire
  • Scales in all keys; possible sight reading and transposition

Graduate Degrees

  • The graduate audition repertoire in trumpet is patterned after a typical undergraduate senior recital. In order to provide some latitude, the requirements are not dictated. However, you must prepare sufficient material to perform a full solo recital containing works which show a diversity of periods and styles.

  • AD applicants must prepare a program of no less than 70 minutes duration, representing at least three style periods and including at least two large-scale works.
