1. Apply Online
All applications, whether live or recorded, are done at their website. Login or membership is NOT necessary for applicants. In order to save our applicants time and money, no materials will be accepted by postal mail.
Application Deadline varies by program and cost. Please carefully note which applies to you below.
2. Choose What to Use for Your Audition Material
Please send three recent recordings of you playing on your primary instrument. Ideally, these will be in mp3 format (not m4p, wmv, or other) and feature you in several different contexts: solo (accompanied or unaccompanied), chamber music, and if possible, on a concerto (with orchestra or piano). Choosing music from various style periods will give us a sense of the scope of your playing. We are listening for technical proficiency, intonation, tone color, musicality, and expression (as applicable to your instrument).
When you're ready, just upload the recordings to the YAPTracker website listed above.
