The Department of Music at The College of New Jersey will be holding our annual workshop entitled, “How to Give a Great Audition,” on November 21st from 10:00AM – 3:00PM.  This hands-on workshop is open to all high school students, as well as teachers and parents.

The information presented will be useful for students planning to study music in college and classical music specifically. Activities will include discussions, demonstrations, break-out sessions, and a question-and-answer period with a panel of music professors. Over the course of the workshop, participants will learn about different types of schools and majors, what music departments are looking for in an audition, how to prepare, what to wear, and much more. In addition, there will be area-specific small group masterclasses. The Music faculty and students of TCNJ will be available for one-on-one conversations.

New Jersey All-State/Region Audition Solo masterclasses. Bring your instrument, voice, and music!
