It is preferred that music students applying to the Arts Huron Program  have their Preliminary Rudiments from the RCM.  Please consult the Barbara Wharram book entitled Elementary Rudiments of Music.

Vocal

All students will:
  1. Participate in a 30-minute workshop including a theory quiz.
  2. Be required to sight read a piece of music.
  3. Be given an ear training test.
  4. Be interviewed.
  5. Be required to perform two contrasting solos.
Note:  Vocal requirements for the Arts Huron Vocal Music program come from the RCM Voice Series, Levels 3 and 4.
 
The titles of the required musical pieces for the solo auditions will be emailed out with the audition appointment letter.

Brass, Woodwinds, Percussion

All students will:
  1. Participate in a 30-minute workshop including a theory quiz
  2. Be required to sight read a piece of music
  3. Be given an ear training test

  5. Be required to perform two contrasting selections emailed with the appointment letter.
Note:  Essential Elements Book 2 provides a summative solo at the back of the book for all of the Brass/Woodwind/Percussion players.  While we don’t use this solo, it provides a good indicator of the performance level required for admission to the program.
 
Note Percussion/Drums: You must prepare drum study, bells solo and scales (on the reverse side of your solo).

Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass Viol)

Note:  Though advanced level performance opportunities for string and piano majors are offered through various music ensembles, NO CLASS INSTRUCTION IS OFFERED FOR THESE INSTRUMENTS.  While Instructors will offer support to students on string/keyboard instruments on an incidental basis,  those entering Arts Huron music  will be expected to develop proficiency on a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument or pursue study in the vocal music program.
