Audition Information

BUTI accepts both live auditions and recorded auditions. 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 live piano accompaniment*. BUTI does not provide accompanists. Composition applications are required to submit scores to fulfill audition requirements.

*If you wish to use a recorded accompaniment, you must contact the BUTI offices to receive permission to do so. Permission is not guaranteed.
