Application

Please submit the following materials at least three weeks in advance of our scheduled audition dates:

Music therapy — Write an essay that answers the following question: "Why do you wish to become a music therapist?" In other words, what has drawn you to pursue music therapy as a career choice.
Essay format: Two to three pages, standard margin, 1.5 spacing, 12-point standard font

Composition — Submit a portfolio with photocopies of two or three original compositions. One composition must be in score-form using traditional music notation. Original compositions from music theory coursework are acceptable. Scores created by computer notation programs such as Finale or Sibelius are acceptable, as are handwritten scores. If available, please submit recordings or links to websites of these compositions as well. Note: Applicants who do not have a composition portfolio are encouraged to apply as BA in Music students, and request a change of major to the Bachelor of Music in Composition during the first year of music study.

BA in Music — Submit any other supporting evidence that gives us an idea of your musical interests, such as your performance programs, compositions or papers.
