Please note: due to Covid 19 concerns, KU School of Music will be offering video auditions in lieu of the live auditions.
Candidates for the Graduate Certificate in Music Performance, MM in Performance or the DMA in Performance should contact Prof. Steve Leisring directly regarding audition repertoire choices and requirements.
- Candidates should be prepared to present at least 20 minutes of standard repertoire that best demonstrates the candidate’s current level. This should include works performed on Bb and C trumpet.
- Candidates interested in Graduate Assistantships will be required to demonstrate ability on the Piccolo and/or Eb trumpet as well.
- Use of an accompaniment is optional for the audition.
- Emphasis will be on evaluating the quality of the audition performance over the difficulty of the works performed.
