Undergraduate Student — Audition Guideline Literature List

The following list was compiled by the WIU School of Music's applied music faculty as a guideline for Freshman Auditions.

These repertoire lists represent only suggestions and the specific titles are not required. The pieces do, however, indicate the level of performance expected of incoming students.

Sophomore, Junior, and Senior auditions can follow the same repertoire guidelines, but should understand that a higher performance level will be expected. The difficulty level of the literature will also be considered.
