Music scholarships are available to prospective music majors and non-music majors. Financial awards are based on music ability and department need. Students are expected to demonstrate satisfactory performance and musicianship skills in the audition through the performance of appropriate repertoir and other audition requirements. The amount of the scholarship award is directly proportionate to the student's level of preparation and the quality of their performance at the time of the audition.
Any repertoire that you have prepared as a soloist for regional or state music festivals is appropriate for your audition. You are strongly encouraged to select an audition piece or pieces that are accompanied and to thoroughly practice with the accompianiment in preparation.
Instrumentalists should prepare a solo, etude or movement from a larger work.
Vocalists should prepare two contrasting songs.
In light of the recent development that OU is suspending in-person classes, we are now accepting OU music auditions via YouTube "unlisted" recordings only. Please complete the audition form below prior to sending your video link.
You are welcome to use any recording device you have available (including your phone) to make your video. Please be sure that you are clearly visible in the video recording. For instrumentalists, be sure both hands, as well as your face, are visible in the video. Be sure to include all audition requirements (outlined above) in your video.
Once you have uploaded your unlisted YouTube video, please share the link by email to email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your scholarshp audition video.
