REGISTRATION PROFESSIONAL PROGAM
INFORMATIONS COVID - 19 :
In the desire to respect health standards and to take no risks, the auditions for the 2020-2021 school year will take place online. We will communicate when regular auditions will be possible.
We have been used to auditions online for many years (especially for our foreign students), they will be conducted as rigorously as possible.
The audition assesses your entry level into the Professional Program of the American School of Modern Music, in order to place you into the most suitable level.
What happens during the audition:
- Written test (about 15 minutes) on intervals, scales, chords and general knowledge of music. This test does not rule admission the school, it is used to place students into classes appropriate to their level in Harmony & Ear Training.
- Instrumental Audition, students must present one mandatory piece (see the list for instrumentalists, see list for vocalists / singers) and one other piece of their choice. Candidates are allowed to play with accompanists, play with a "backing track", or play solo. Students can be accompanied by teachers from the school if they so request in advance, and if they provide clear and readable sheet music (for the free choice piece). The audition also includes instrumental sight-reading and an ear-training test.
Interview with the school's teachers regarding expectations of the student, personal projects, motivation etc ...
The results are communicated a few days after your audition. Students who do not have the appropriate level to enter the first year will be redirected to the preparatory year.
