A personal audition with the music faculty or an audio and/or video tape recording will serve to determine the student's ability. A student should be able to demonstrate proficiency in at least two, favorably all of the four main areas of percussion performance for entrance into Percussion Studies. International students should contact Dr. Nevill for audition repertoire.

  • Keyboard
  • Timpani
  • General Percussion
  • Drumset

All UIL pieces are acceptable as audition material, however, representative pieces from all four areas is highly recommended.

In each of the four areas it is assumed the student possess a firm command of all the fundamental elements of music reading in rhythm and music terminology.

** Students auditioning for scholarships should represent themselves in as many areas of performance as they feel competent.
