Audition requirements

We ask that you record your audition video in one take. The easiest way to submit your audition is by uploading it to YouTube as "unlisted" and sending us the link to Your video will not be shared with anyone other than our instrument-specific faculty members and directors.

NOTE: You won't be able to start lessons until you have paid the registration fee, filled out the registration form, and submitted your audition video.


Let us know if you have any questions regarding the audition process.

All audition requirements include:

  • 2 contrasting etudes or pieces of your choice.

  • 2 scales of your choice.

  • Optional: You may include anything else you would like us to see that would best represent you, whether that is an original composition, orchestral etudes, improvisation, or anything else! 

Note: if you are joining Texas Music Institute as a beginner, your audition requirement is waived; just let us know.
