Audition Weekends | LSU School of Music

Audition Weekends

The LSU School of Music offers three Audition Weekends for prospective undergraduate and graduate students. These make up our largest auditioning opportunity of the year, and occur within the first month of the spring semester.

In addition to the opportunity to audition for our nationally and internationally acclaimed faculty, prospective students and their parents will be able to meet with faculty and admissions staff, learn about the availability of scholarships and assistantships, meet current music students, tour the School of Music and explore the beautiful LSU campus.


Prospective students seeking a Minor in Music do not need to audition during Audition Weekends.

  • Auditions for music minors will be held the week prior to the start of classes. If you wish to audition as music minor please contact the appropriate faculty member of your area or instrument in music to arrange an audition in the fall. If you still wish to audition as a music major, you will need to sign into MyLSU and change your major via the Student Services page.


Prospective students only seeking to participate in music ensembles do not need to audition during Audition Weekends.

  • Students interested in auditioning for participation in ensembles will audition during the first week of classes.  Students can feel free to contact those ensemble directors directly for additional information.
  • For Department of Bands ensembles, including the Tiger Marching Band, visit for audition materials and information.
