BUTI recommends unaccompanied auditions for instrumental auditions. If an instrumentalist chooses to use a pianist for their audition, however, they will not be penalized. Vocalists are required to audition with piano accompaniment. BUTI does not provide accompanists. Harp and percussion applicants must audition with a recorded audition and should not schedule a live audition. Composition applications are required to submit scores to fulfill audition requirements.
