Those planning to audition for admittance to the Department of Music at Messiah College should first read the requirements for those auditions on the department’s Website.
Those auditioning with guitar as the performance area should prepare two contrasting pieces using finger style technique (no pick). The pieces should contain both a melody and an accompaniment played at the same time by the person auditioning.
An alternate choice for the auditioning guitarist would be to perform one piece as described above and also perform a second guitar piece using a pick which contains both a melody and an accompaniment played at the same time by the person auditioning. An example of such a piece would be a chord-melody style jazz standard.
Any questions concerning the requirements may be directed to:
