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:
Admission audition times must be arranged directly with Professor Harbaugh, head of the trumpet area. He can be reached by calling the Dept. of Music at 509-963-1216. Auditions should be scheduled during our annual Audition Days, in January. For accommodation at another time, please contact Professor Harbaugh.
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.
Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Band auditions take place during the first week of each new quarter. Auditions for Winter and/or Spring will be announced as needed. Contact Professor Harbaugh for more information.
Students wishing to audition for ensemble placement on trumpet should prepare a 3-4 minute solo of your choice (no jazz please!) and be prepared to sight read for the remainder of the 6-7 minute audition time.
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.
