Hi aska,im a student going to gr.12 and i want to audition for the BMus program for piano. I have already been preparing for my audition and i looked at the requirements but i was wondering if you know what the audition process is like. What should i expect going into the audition, what will my schedule look like, and how many people on average get accepted? Are there any tips for a successful audition? UofT is my ideal school.Thanks!sincerely,i’m scared out of my mind
hey there scared out of my mind*,
don’t be scared! as with any other program or stream at uoft, i can’t tell you how many people will or have gotten in during previous years. however, i’ll refer you to this document, which tells you the total number of students enrolled in each program in 2010.
unfortunately i can’t give you insider details about the audition process. aska’s words are music to (most) people’s ears, but other than that, i’m pretty melodically limited.
fortunately, the Faculty of Music’s charmingly 90s-looking website has this page, which explains everything you’ll be expected to do before and at the audition. also, i called the undergraduate administrator at the faculty of music and she is more than willing to take any more specific questions at undegrad ( . ) music ( at ) utoronto ( . ) ca.
she also recommended that you attend their information sessions on fall campus day, which is a good idea no matter what program you’re interested in. fall campus day is super helpful, AND lots of colleges/faculties/programs offer free food, so it’s a good trip out no matter what.
*sorry, sorry. this is how i picture all high school students. but a large part of that is probably because that’s how i looked in high school, so i may be biased.
