How to Apply

BM, Brass Studies

All prospective and transfer students must apply for admission to NYU Steinhardt. Apply for undergraduate study.

2021–2022 UPDATE

While NYU is operating in-person, for the continued safety of all involved, we will hold final spring 2022 auditions via video submission. If invited for a final audition, applicants will be asked to participate in a live Zoom interview. Audio-only recordings will not be accepted for either prescreen or final auditions.

Submit your Prescreen Recording

All prospective students, except for Early Decision I applicants, are required to submit a prescreen video online via GetAcceptd.

Music Education majors who play brass should schedule their audition through the Music Education program.

Additional Notes

  • Please be aware that follow-up auditions and interviews are only requested if the faculty would like more information on an applicant that would warrant a callback. Not being asked to interview does not mean that you have been rejected from NYU.
  • Though NYU's deadline for Spring transfer admission is November 1 and our deadline for Summer/Fall transfer admission is April 1, we suggest that you submit your Common Application one month in advance. Submitting your Common Application early will leave you more time to schedule an audition by our deadlines above.

Audition Requirements

Two contrasting études, one solo, and two orchestral excerpts.
