All students preparing for an audition for admission into the Claflin University Department of Music should observe the following policies and procedures: Students must provide their own instrument, except for a concert piano.

Any piece of music performed must generally be recognized to be an integral composition (arrangement or original), written for the instrument or voice part upon which it is to be executed and performed in its entirety, unless stopped by the faculty elevators. However, performers may play single movements of multi-movement compositions.

All solos written with piano accompaniments must be performed with that accompaniment or a recording of it. Exceptions will be considered prior to the audition date.

All performers are expected to demonstrate individual musical proficiency by selecting music of a grade level appropriate for potential University-level music students.
