Preparing a Recording

Make sure that your audio or video file is high quality so that your performance can be evaluated successfully. Here are a few tips for your audition recording:

  • Aim for the highest-possible audio and video quality.
  • You can upload your audition as a single recording or as individual tracks (excerpts).
  • Do not electronically alter a recording, e.g., no editing to fix bad notes.
  • Do not send any audition recording via email.
  • Always keep an extra copy of your audition recordings in case there are problems along the way.

Submitting a Recording

Specific instructions for uploading your audition materials can be found in your application.

Audition recordings will not be evaluated until the application fee is paid.
