Auditions

You'll be great. Trust us.

Now is your chance to show us what you've got. Before you're admitted to the Conservatory, you'll need to take an audition. Auditions are held both in San Francisco and regionally. While we encourage students to audition in San Francisco so that they may experience our vibrant campus firsthand, we understand that might not be possible for everyone. We offer regional and international auditions, along with the ability to submit final audition recordings. Some areas require pre-screening in order to be invited to a live audition.
