Graduate Vocal Coaching Auditions

Candidates typically perform an on-campus vocal coaching audition. The audition will take place with vocalists provided by the Bass School of Music. Candidates will also be interviewed by members of the vocal coaching faculty. The audition/interview will be scheduled by the program director at a mutually agreeable time. If an in-person audition is not possible, the selections can be video recorded—preferably with singers—and submitted via Acceptd. A subsequent Zoom interview and sight-reading performance will also be scheduled.

The audition will include the following elements:

  • Two contrasting art songs
  • An aria from the standard operatic repertoire
  • A selection from the musical theater repertoire
  • Sight reading

The selections chosen should represent the range of the applicant’s skills and abilities. Specific audition programs (except sight reading) will be determined in advance in consultation with the program director, and a rehearsal with the singer(s) will be scheduled prior to the audition. Prior to the audition, submission of supporting materials, including c.v., portfolio of performances, recordings, etc., is encouraged. To schedule an audition/interview, submit materials, or make inquiries about the MM-Vocal Coaching degree, please contact:
