    Music Audition Information

    Each candidate will perform two solos, discuss the performance, participate in some tonal and rhythmic exercises, and participate in an interview.

    We are first and foremost evaluating your potential and passion, your level of musicianship, and your willingness to work hard to move to the next level. We are looking for students who:

    • Are interested in a career in music
    • Love performing in front of an audience
    • Are excited by music
    • Practice and strive for excellence

    What to bring to your audition

    • Your instrument (Exceptions: piano, string bass, and percussion)
    • Your 3-4 prepared solos of contrasting style (you will choose one to perform and the panel will choose one)
    • One copy of the piano music for the accompanist, if applicable (an accompanist will be available to play piano, upon request)
    • Three copies of your sheet music for the audition panel


    Please Note!

    The Creative Arts Academy does not have its own large ensemble groups.  In order to be in the Music Enrichment division at the CAA, students must participate in choir, band, or orchestra in conjunction with Sudlow’s music program. This will require students to participate in Early Bird Health and PE classes at Sudlow.
