4. Provide contact information for your referee.

Prior to applying, ask a musician or teacher who knows you well if they would be willing to write a reference for you (i.e. your current private music teacher, school choir or band conductor).

Your referee will receive an email from admissions@mun.ca with a link to the online reference form.
