Auditions and Scholarships
Sinclair Community College is an open-door enrollment institution. There are no initial barriers to starting the music program.
- After you have made successful application to Sinclair, you will meet with an Academic Advisor who will help you set up an audition on your instrument, including voice, for Sinclair's music faculty.
- Students need to prepare to perform by playing or singing two contrasting selections for their audition. Your current teacher can help you choose what pieces to perform or you can refer to our list of representative repertoire for first year students.
- As a part of your audition, you will also take a brief assessment test of your music theory knowledge and your aural skills.
- Auditions are held in August before the start of Fall Semester.
- High school students have the opportunity to audition during the scholarship auditions held in February.
Sinclair's Music Department awards many tuition scholarships to music majors every year.
