Financial Aid/Scholarships
A limited number of tuition reduction benefits and scholarships will be awarded to students according to their financial need and merit. The amount and number vary each year based on the financial availability of the Frost Preparatory Program.
A Financial Aid application must be submitted by June 2, 2019 to request the tuition reduction benefit.
 
Pre-screening Material and Repertoire
To be considered for an audition, applicants must submit the following by March 17, 2019:
  • Application for Admission
  • Application fee
  • Current resume
  • Video recording containing the following repertoire:
    • A complete sonata by Haydn, Mozart, or Beethoven
    • A work by a 19th-century composer
If selected, the applicant will be invited for a live audition, for which all the works must be performed from memory.
Repertoire for the live audition can differ from the one submitted for pre-screening.
