DWU Music Scholarships

Music Scholarships

Regardless of your major, you are invited to participate in choral and instrumental ensembles at DWU, and you may be eligible for a music scholarship.

If you wish to be considered for a music scholarship, you must present an on-campus audition during the Performing arts Scholarship Day.  If you receive a scholarship for music, you will be expected to participate in an ensemble for each semester you are enrolled and receive the scholarship.

If you wish to audition for a vocal scholarship, please prepare two vocal solos of contrasting styles. It is highly recommended that one of these be in a foreign language. Pop music is not appropriate for this audition, but rather music that you would sing for a solo and ensemble contest or in voice lessons. You may bring your own accompanist or one can be provided for you.

If you wish to audition for a piano scholarship, please prepare two concert solos: one from the Baroque or Classical period and the other from the Romantic period to the present.

If you intend to audition for an instrumental scholarship, you must prepare one appropriate solo. Pop music is not appropriate for this audition, but rather music that you would play for a solo and ensemble contest, in lessons, or for an all-state audition.
