I would like to audition on a second instrument/voice:

Voice Accompanist Services:
UPDATE regarding online auditions: An accompaniment is required. If your accompanist doesn't live with you, please do not enlist one to play for your audition in person. Instead, you can either ask them to record the piano part for you to sing along with, or you can email Dr. Nathan Krueger at with the titles and keys of the pieces you will be singing. Our voice faculty will attempt to find pre-recorded accompanist tracks for you.

Scholarship Applicants:

You will need to send the UW Oshkosh Department of Music Audition Committee a letter of recommendation from your private instructor or choir/band/orchestra director that addresses your musical background and ability. This letter must be in the Department of Music office no later than two weeks before your audition date.

The letter may be emailed to, or mailed to: Audition Committee, UW Oshkosh Department of Music, 800 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh, WI 54901-8636

Music Theory and Keyboard Skills

Applicants will be required to complete an online music theory assessment as part of the audition process. The results will be used for class placement only and won't be used in admissions decisions.

In addition, applicants will be requested to fill out an online keyboard questionnaire prior to their audition. Applicants without a keyboard background will be placed into beginning class piano. Applicants with previous keyboard experience will be placed into the appropriate course according to the results of the questionnaire. A placement exam may be required for those with significant keyboard experience. This placement exam will be given at the beginning of the semester and will include sight-reading and an assessment of fundamental keyboard skills.


The Department of Music will contact you via EMAIL to confirm your audition date, using the email address you provide. Your email address is also the way we will contact you for future correspondence. PLEASE VERIFY THAT THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU PROVIDE IS ACCURATE.
