The Music Department at Western encourages all students who are interested in becoming a Music Major or Minor to audition for the program during the spring of their senior year in High School.
Acceptance into the Department of Music is achieved through the entrance audition. There are minimum standards for acceptance on each instrument and voice. Students who meet these standards are accepted as enrollment capacity allows. Some students who nearly meet the standards may be accepted on probationary status. In addition to the literature listed below, students may elect to perform any work which is of a similar (or greater) level of difficulty.
Additional Requirements for Composition Majors: Prospective composition majors must also submit a portfolio of previous work for faculty review. The portfolio should consist of notated score and any recordings, live or midi. Non-local students may submit their scores and recordings online. Please contact Professor Roger Briggs at (360) 650-3868 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, to schedule an interview for the same day of your entrance audition. Prospective students will be notified of their acceptance into the composition program once they are accepted into the Department of Music based on instrumental audition.
