Denison University invites prospective students who have a passion for music to audition as an optional supplement to their application. All students who audition will be considered for a Denison arts scholarship. These merit-based arts scholarships range from $5,000 to half tuition and are renewable for all four years. Scholarship recipients are encouraged but not required to major or minor in music.

Both in-person and virtual auditions will be 15 minutes long. During in-person auditions, you will have the opportunity to connect with faculty and current students, tour our facilities, and learn more about Denison’s music program.

If you are from outside the region and who can’t travel to campus, you may audition virtually instead. Alternatively, you may submit a 15-minute video recording as an arts supplement. The arts supplement deadline is the same as your chosen application deadline. Please review the specific requirements for each instrument/area in the drop-downs below.

We encourage applicants to connect with faculty members in your area(s) of interest for more information on Denison’s music major/minor, ensembles, and lessons.
