Admissions and Auditions

Aural Skills Proficiency Exam

Required of incoming transfers, the Aural Skills Proficiency Exam is administered following the Music Theory Proficiency Exam.  Students should expect to sight-sing a melody appropriate to their level of study.  For those who have completed Theory IV, the melody will include functional chromaticism and modulation.  Dictation will consist of a short melodic example and a short harmonic example in four-part chorale style.  Emphasis is placed upon obtaining the progression and the soprano and bass voices, but the student should strive for all four voices.
