Music Industry Auditions

Applicants will be considered for an Music Industry placement at Hunter School of the Performing Arts through an individual audition, interview and a group workshop.

Individual Audition & Interview

The individual audition and interview will be conducted by a panel consisting of at least two members of the Music and Music Industry staff.

Applicants should present evidence of their involvement and creativity in the Music Industry field and discuss their role.

Applicants present a portfolio of work/experience giving evidence of work composed such as musical scores and recordings - the technical quality of recordings is not assessed.

Applicants will be given an unprepared task which relates directly to the Music Industry. Students will be required to develop musical ideas, such as a theme, to specific guidelines.

This individual audition and interview may take up to one hour duration and will assess:

  • ability to translate knowledge/understanding of performance requirements in their field
  • creativity and imagination
  • concentration and focus

Group Workshop

This workshop may include the appreciation elements of dance, drama and music, but will focus primarily on student knowledge and skills in the use of audio equipment and technology.

The emphasis in the workshop is on creativity, teamwork, discipline, and the ability to closely follow instructions.
