Audition Guidelines

The following audition guidelines are for music electives who wish to be considered for ensemble scholarships.

All students should provide:

  • ACT score–click here for SAT to ACT Conversion Chart (GC uses only the Critical Reading and Math scores, i.e., the chart on the left of page one);
  • Completed music audition application form (sent when the audition is scheduled).

Wind Instrumentalists

  • Prepared solo;
  • Chromatic scale covering the entire range of the instrument;
  • Selected major scales/arpeggios;
  • Sight reading material.

Vocalists

  • Prepare a minimum of one memorized vocal selection. Students may be asked to vocalize and/or sightread for the voice faculty.

Pianists/Organists

  • Two solo works originally written for piano. The two pieces should represent two different composers of different stylistic periods (i.e., Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic or Modern). A movement or individual piece from a larger work may be considered as one piece.
  • Sight reading.
  • Repertoire list (i.e., a list of pieces you have studied).
