An audition is required of all students—incoming freshmen, transfer students, or continuing students—who want to major in music at UNH. There are two parts to the audition, the theory test and the performance. Auditions are by appointment only.
Part 1: Performance Audition
Click your instrument name in the list below to see your requirements. Unless specified, music education and performance majors have the same requirements.
Additional Information for those pursuing:
BA Music Liberal Studies option
BA Composition option
Part 2: Written Theory Test
The written theory test is used for placement and includes intervals, triads, and major and minor scales in treble and bass clefs, and notation of simple melodies. No theory training is expected beyond that normally acquired through performing experiences.
You do not need to be a music major to participate in these ensembles. More information about ensembles.
