Welcome to the School of Music at Central Michigan University!
We look forward to meeting you at auditions and introducing you to our supportive music community. Students attending an audition should plan to be available from
on their audition day.
Anyone auditioning for the School of Music is invited to attend any of our School of Music events happening the night before or the night of their audition day.
Visit our events page to see what performances are happening on or near your audition date!
You can expect to be contacted by School of Music faculty with your individual schedule and an estimated audition time the week of your audition date.
Make sure to carefully review our
audition requirements before arriving to campus!
If a conflict arises and you can no longer attend the audition day for which you have registered, please contact Lynn Losey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the number of audition requests, rescheduling an audition can be difficult if advanced notice is not provided.

School of Music Audition FAQs
Looking to audition for the Chippewa Marching Band only?
Any CMU student is welcome to audition for the Chippewa Marching Band.
In keeping with social distancing precautions during the current health crisis, auditions for the 98th season of the Chippewa Marching Band will take place online. Auditions for incoming non-music majors and minors, either live or via prepared video submission, will be conducted between the last week of May and the first two weeks of June. We ask for your patience while we work out the details. We are preparing revised demonstration videos and will post those soon.
In the meantime, the posted materials are still a good guide for your preparation.
Incoming music majors and minors not auditioning for the color guard or drum line won't need to prepare an audition. More information will come to you directly in the coming days.
We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
