In order to complete your acceptance into the CWU Department of Music program, you must audition for the music faculty. This gives us an opportunity to hear the level you have achieved in your musical skills and it gives you the opportunity to discuss your development with collegiate instructors.
For your audition we recommend the following:
Before you can audition you must register for an audition time. Please use the online audition form found on our Audition Information Page. You should also consider submitting recommendation forms, also found on that page.
Auditions should be scheduled during our annual Audition Days, in January. For accommodation at another time, please contact Professor Goodenberger. He can be reached by calling the Dept. of Music at 509-963-1216.
Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Band auditions take place during the first week of each new quarter. Fall auditions have specific excerpts for all who intend to play in a large ensemble. For specific excerpts, please visit our Audition Excerpts page. Auditions for Winter and/or Spring will be announced as needed. Contact Professor Goodenberger for more information.
Jazz Band auditions will take place during the first week of each new quarter. Visit the Jazz Auditions page for more information, charts, and scheduled times. Contact Professor Bruya if you have any further questions.
