Applications, Awards and Auditions

All students who wish to major in music must audition for admission to the department. This can be done at the same time as an award audition. Students who do not wish to major in music may still audition for a music award  to participate in the Department of Music  while at Jewell. Awards are competitive and are awarded based on talent.

A music award is both a reflection of a student’s achievement before coming to Jewell and also an investment in the potential achievement of that student while attending Jewell. All awards require some participation in the department, usually in the form of applied lessons for at least four semesters and membership in one or more ensembles. Students may audition on instrument(s), voice, piano or a combination.

Before auditioning students should read and follow the sequence listed below. We hold three audition days and you should plan to come to one of them if you want to audition for a music award.  For more details about the application and audition process download the Admission to the Department of Music and Music Awards Audition Information brochure.

If, at this time, you want further information about the Department of Music but are not ready to apply for an award or application, please fill in the Music Questionnaire. This allows us to get to know you and your musical background better and to answer any specific questions you might have.
