AUDITIONS for Rowan Admission (2019-20)

If you are interested in becoming a member of The Rowan University Trumpet Studio we want to hear from you.

To register for an audition go HERE.  If you would like to take a free lesson either in preparation for your audition or as a way to help make your college decision, just contact me HERE (or send an email to my Rowan account) and we’ll sit down and work on trumpet playing and music!

Audition Dates for 2019/20 (fall 2020 matriculation): 

Audition Dates for Spring 2019 and Fall 2020 admission:

On your audition day, in addition to your performance audition, there is a welcome session as well as ‘break-out’ session for each area (winds, brass, and percussion; strings; voice; and Music Industry).  You will also take Theory, Aural Skills, and Piano Placement Exams.

AUDITION DAY SCHEDULE (unless otherwise noted on the Dept of Music Website):

  • 12:30-1pm       Student registration in Wilson Hall
  • 1pm                 Welcome Session
  • 1:30                 Area Break-Out Sessions with Faculty
  • 2:00                 Individual Auditions

Audition Requirements for Trumpet can be found HERE. Just scroll down for the information.  Basically we need to hear a two-octave concert Bb scale (single-tongued), a chromatic scale (low F# to High C and back down slurred),  and then something fast, and something slow.  If you have questions contact me, I am glad to help with whatever you may need.
