Practice Audition Day

In light of changing guidelines throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, dates and details for School of Music events are subject to change. The safety of our community is our top priority. For updates, check this site often and follow the School of Music on social media.

Program Overview

Each October, the School of Music invites high school juniors and seniors to take part in a special “Practice Audition Day.” Students considering music as a career option are encouraged to take this opportunity to meet Ohio State faculty and administrators, participate in studio classes, and have their singing or playing evaluated by faculty. Other topics covered during Practice Audition Day will include the following:

  • The Ohio State and School of Music admissions process
  • Financial aid and scholarships
  • Tips on auditioning and playing in public
  • Preparing for college music theory
  • The Music Education program at Ohio State

Due to visitation limits on campus, Practice Audition Day 2020 will be a virtual experience. We are in the process of planning a great event. Check back for details.

  • Registration will open in September
  • Guidelines for the virtual audition experience will be provided here soon.


Practice Audition Day is a free event, but all students must register online to secure a spot in the program.

Registration will open here in September.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email. You will also receive a Final Instructions email approximately 10 days before the event.
