All woodwind and brass players：
Candidates should prepare two contrasting own choice pieces, at least one of which must be accompanied. The total duration of the two pieces should not exceed 15 minutes. An accompanist will be provided for the audition.
Oboe, cor anglais (postgraduate only), bassoon, French horn, tuba, cornet, tenor horn, baritone horn & euphonium：
The audition will normally consist of one round lasting approximately 20 minutes including a brief interview. Both pieces will need to be presented and you will have up to 20 minutes to warm up before your audition. The panel will ask you to undertake a short test in sight reading, and may ask you to demonstrate proficiency in scales and arpeggios up to ABRSM Grade 8 level.
Flute, clarinet, bass clarinet (postgraduate only), trumpet & trombone：
Unless specified in the audition comments on UCAS Conservatoires when your audition time is allocated, the audition will have two rounds. All candidates take part in round one, after which selected candidates go through to round two.
Round 1 (morning) – Maximum 10 minutes with 10 minutes warm up time
The panel will ask you to perform one piece, plus undertake a short test in sight reading. Candidates selected to play in round two will be notified at lunchtime. Candidates are advised that auditions are highly competitive and that, on average, only half of the candidates heard in the morning may be selected for round two.
Round 2 (afternoon) – Maximum 15 minutes with up to 15 minutes warm up time
The panel will hear the second piece which will be followed by a brief interview.
Please note that for all undergraduate applicants, the panel may choose to work with you in round two (or in your second piece in a one round audition) as if in a lesson. You may also be asked to demonstrate proficiency in scales and arpeggios up to ABRSM Grade 8 level.
In certain circumstances, including late auditions outside the dedicated audition period, an audition will consist of one round only when both pieces of repertoire should be presented. In such cases, the auditions will last approximately 20 minutes and candidates will have 20 minutes warm up time. If this is the case, this will be clearly noted on UCAS Conservatoires when your audition time is allocated.
In choosing your pieces, the first movement of a classical concerto (Mozart, Haydn etc.) can be appropriate, with a second piece showing different skills or styles. The Grade 8 lists of ABRSM or Trinity College London give good examples and indications of standard for undergraduate level, but note that brass and wind entrance auditions at RNCM are free choice repertoire.
Saxophone (normally two rounds):
Unless specified in the audition comments on UCAS Conservatoires when your audition time is allocated, the audition will be in two rounds, as above. You will need to prepare two contrasting pieces, one of which must be accompanied. As an indication of the required standard, candidates should consult the following list:
Paul Creston – Sonata
Phil Woods – Sonata
Paule Maurice – Tableaux de Provence
Jean Absil – Fantaisie Caprice
Jolivet – Fantaisie Impromptu
Gotkovsky – Brillance
Milhaud – Scaramouche
