Auditions, admission and scholarships

Students who wish to major in music at UW-Superior must audition for admission to the Music Department. Prospective music students are encouraged to contact the music office to schedule a free trial lesson with their respective instrumental or vocal professor. Audition requirements for new freshmen and transfer students are listed below.

Note: Please prepare two contrasting pieces for your audition (classical preferred).

If a student wishes to be a music minor, or simply be involved in the musical ensembles, that student does not need to audition. Ensemble auditions will be held at the beginning of the school year. Please contact the appropriate ensemble director for information.

To schedule an audition for the music department, please complete an application and submit it to the Music Department.
