We may invite you to attend an audition (by Skype for applicants living outside the UK). The audition will be with two music tutors, taking about 20 minutes, with the following activities designed to enable you to show us your capabilities:
1. Either a performance exercise or the presentation of a portfolio of compositions.
For the performance you will be asked to play (or sing) a piece of music that you’ve prepared in advance. This should be approximately grade seven or higher standard and doesn’t need to be featured on a current syllabus. You should select a piece or extract that is about three minutes long. If you wish for someone from the university to accompany you, this can be arranged when you receive your audition invitation.
For the portfolio you should include examples of your compositional work. Whilst there is no limit to the number of pieces of work you may include, you are encouraged to only include compositions of a high quality that you would be happy to discuss further at interview. It is not essential but we encourage you to provide recordings of your compositions.
2. A short listening exercise – this will lead to an informal discussion of your musical interests and experiences.
3. Course discussion – the tutors will discuss the course with you, giving you the opportunity to talk about your interest in the course and your understanding of creative music technology.
