Submit via SlideRoom

Students uploading a music submission should include the following information:

  • Your primary instrument or method of music-making with years studied.
  • A description of your musical training and experience. Include any relevant classes (e.g., music theory), private study, or group music making.
  • Original compositions should be marked as such, with a score included if applicable.
  • We ask that you also list composer(s) and title(s).
  • The total length of recordings should not exceed 15 minutes.
  • SlideRoom only allows students to submit one portfolio to the same program. In most circumstances, students should submit materials for only their primary instrument or method of music-making.
  • In the rare circumstance where a student has equally impressive talent in more than one area, they may submit materials in a secondary area. After a student has submitted their primary instrument they will be prompted to submit an additional form for their secondary instrument.
