Students schedule their Live Audition date in the Registration Form. Live auditions will include solo repertoire and scales, as well as a sight-reading exercise. A confirmation email with the selected live audition date & time will be emailed after the registration process has been completed. String students may audition in Hillsboro or Portland. Wind, brass, percussion or Jazz students must select from the Portland audition dates/times.

Video Audition Scheduling: Click for more information

Self-recorded video auditions will consist of 2 parts: solo repertoire and scales and excerpts. The excerpts will be sent to students on a scheduled date and will take the place of sight-reading that occurs in the live audition. Students schedule their excerpt exercise in the registration form. A confirmation email with information about how to submit video auditions will be emailed to you after the registration process is completed.

Custom dates for Live Auditions or Scheduled Excerpts may be requested via the registration form. A member of the MYS Staff will reach out to you to schedule a date and time for your student to complete their audition. Contact if you have questions.
