Audition Information

The audition for admission to the Lawrence Cello Studio can be completed on the Lawrence campus, at one of Lawrence’s many regional audition sites, or through submission of a high-quality video recording of audition repertoire.  On-campus auditions usually take the form of a private lesson.  Students auditioning on campus begin the audition with a performance of their prepared repertoire, etude and scales; the audition continues with a lesson of 20 to 30 minutes duration.


Audition requirements for admission to the Cello Studio include the following: 

One movement from the standard concerto repertoire
one movement of unaccompanied Bach
an etude
a four octave major scale and its parallel minor and arpeggios
