Music applicants

All music applicants will need to apply through UAC or direct.

You may either audition into the degree or submit qualifications for Band 4 HSC Music, or AMEB theory and practical qualifications or TAFE qualifications.

What's it like to audition for the Bachelor of Music?


To audition for the degree, either submit videos of two performances made on a phone or other video recording device saved as MP4 files, OR a composition portfolio of two or more works, in score and recorded formats. Performances may be on more than one instrument or voice, and backing tracks may be used as accompaniment. ​Upload the videos along with a document containing your email address, phone number and photo ID to the following link. Please begin the label for each file with your name. All files will be stored securely.
Submissions will be accepted until 5 February, 2021.

The files will be auditioned and applicants will be advised of the outcome within four weeks after submission.
