For Music Department Scholarships (Prospective Students)

Students planning to audition for the Department as part of their university application should visit this page for general information about procedures and dates.

This page offers more specific information for the Piano Area. Scholarship auditions for piano for 2022-2023 will be held on December 10, 2022, January 7, and January 14, 2023. Request an audition using this form.

The audition can be considered part of consideration for scholarship as well as admission, but all appropriate applications must first be submitted to UNC admissions before an audition date will be granted.

Requirements include three pieces of contrasting style, scales, and sight-reading. We offer a sample masterclass for prospective students after auditions on both audition dates; if you would like to play in or audit the class, please arrange your travel plans accordingly.

Students are encouraged to contact directly by email or phone Area Head, Dr. Clara Yang, who will be able to answer your questions and advise in the application process.

For Lessons (Current Students)

Auditions for lessons are held each semester during the first week of classes. Video auditions for Fall 2022 should be submitted by Tuesday, August 16, 2022. More information and a submission sheet for lesson auditions is available here. (Note: If you are looking for the piano proficiency audition to test out of MUSC 136/236, click here.)
