NOTE: Piano students who have previously auditioned and been accepted to a piano program do not have to audition again in August.
Requirement to audition: 3 years of previous classical-style study.
Auditions: Auditions will be held Thursday and Friday of registration week: Thursday, August 16, 1:00-4:00 p.m., and Friday, August 17, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1:00-4:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary; just go to Room 208 in the Fine Arts Building when you’re ready and see Dr. Janice Wenger.
Preparation: Be prepared to play two contrasting pieces, at least one must be memorized. Neither has to be long—in fact shorter is better. You will be asked to sight-read a simple piano piece.
Acceptance: If qualified, student is placed on waiting list until the third day of class, pending space in piano studios.
Music Major/Minor: If you have not already auditioned on piano as a music major or minor, you will need to audition on Monday, August 20, and you need to contact Dr. Wenger directly to make an appointment for that day (WengerJ@missouri.edu).
