Once we have reviewed your application, our Office of Admissions may invite you to audition. Live auditions are held in Cleveland and New York City.
If your area of instruction includes a pre-screen round as part of the application process, faculty will review your audio or video performance of selected works and determine if your work qualifies you for a live audition spot. Please note that ALL DMA candidates must provide a video prescreening regardless of instrument. DMA applicants to areas that do not require a pre-screen round should submit approx. 30 minutes of the audition requirements.
You may express your preference for a specific date on your application; however, do not make travel arrangements or reservations until you receive an official invitation to schedule an audition from the CIM Admissions Office. If all available audition time has been taken on the first choice of date, we will attempt to schedule one of your alternate choices on a space-available basis.
