Detailed information on audition requirements and application procedures for the School of Music can be found at www.mun.ca/music/programs/undergrad/index.php for undergraduates and at www.mun.ca/music/programs/graduate/index.php for graduate students. Below is a summary of audition requirements for prospective undergraduate and graduate students. This page also contains advice for undergraduate auditionees and tips for submitting a recorded audition.
Audition requirements can be found at http://www.mun.ca/music/programs/undergrad/insreq.php.
In brief, prospective undergraduate flutists should prepare:
1. One nineteeth century, twentieth century or contemporary work of your choice;
2. One baroque or classical work. A list of suggested works in provided in the audition requirements at the link above.
3. Scales: all major, harmonic minor, melodic minor and chromatic, two octaves.
4. Sight reading.
Good resources to help you select your “own choice”
piece are the National Flute Association's graded repertoire list
and the Royal Conservatory exam syllabus. Any work graded NFA level
“G” or above is acceptable, as is any piece Grade 8 or
higher from the RCM lists.
If you would like to substitute an alternative piece for the set work or would like to check the suitability of a piece for your "own choice" selection, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective graduate flutists should prepare:
A recital program of approximately 50 minutes in length from which the Committee will select excerpts. Applicants should ensure that a wide range of styles and composers are represented in their selected works, and are encouraged to include: a work by Mozart or Bach; a contemporary, non-tonal work. Generally, your 4th year/senior recital repertoire will be suitable.
