How to Audition for the Studio

LSU processes all admissions and sets up all auditions for degree programs.  Complete information is available at        https://www.lsu.edu/cmda/music/admissions. 

 

GRADS: Submit your audition video (for grads) by the November deadline, or as soon as possible thereafter. In advance of your audition, contact us for a trial lesson (usually on Friday, or at the end of the day on Saturday).  If the audition dates do not work for your schedule, it is sometimes possible to audition mid-day on Tuesdays.  For full consideration of financial assistance it is advantageous to audition not later than mid-February.

 

UNDERGRADS: Undergraduates who wish to be considered for admission to this studio should submit video links directly to graysongrovesstudio@gmail.com 

For students who have completed their application for admission to LSU, a trial lesson is offered free of charge.  Others interested in a trial lesson should simply book a regular lesson on this site.  For the trial lesson please submit PDF's of your music to robertgraysonstudio@gmail. Standard classical pieces are advisable so the focus can be on evaluating your voice (not on sight-reading piano scores).  If submitting by video the same parameters apply.

GRADS: Please include two contrasting opera arias and two art songs.  Slower moving, more sustained repertoire tells us more about your talent.  Provide a copy of your repertoire from your Bachelor's degree, and a copy of your performance resume.
