How to Apply


To apply, prospective students must first complete an online Application Form. Once this form has been processed, we will contact the student to arrange an audition time.


  • Entrance to the Advanced Performance Program is by audition only
  • Auditions will be held in April / May 2018
  • Students must prepare a group of works or movements from concert repertoire in a variety of styles and periods of music. This repertoire must demonstrate the student’s ability to prepare two complete recitals over the following school year
  • Live auditions are strongly recommended, but high-quality video recordings may be considered
  • Applicants must play with a collaborative pianist at the audition. If the applicant chooses to play with one of the Conservatory’s collaborative pianists, the applicant is responsible for paying the pianist directly
  • All auditions will be evaluated by a panel consisting of Academy and APP faculty
