The graduate candidate should prepare a memorized selection, no less than thirty minutes in length, including works from at least three different periods in music (Baroque, Classical Sonata, Romantic, Impressionist, or Contemporary). The piano department highly recommends candidates check their repertoire choices with a member of the Alabama School of the Arts piano faculty prior to the scheduled audition. The faculty may also request the candidate to play pieces from the repertoire in addition to their prepared audition. Additionally, the candidate will be required to sight read one or two faculty selections.
Assistantships are available within the programs and interested candidates may reach out for more information.
