Test Flight



3. Audition and scholarship results timeline:

Due to Covid safety precautions, we strongly reccomend that you schedule a one-on-one audition with applied faculty members, either in person or virtually. We are, however, still offering four Test Flight dates, three on campus and one virtual, if you prefer to wait and audition while also learning more about UTM Music during a Test Flight event.

  • Step 1 - Set up an individual audition or audition at a Test Flight event date
  • Step 2 - Audition results will be communicated by applied faculty member post-audition
  • Step 3 - Electronic scholarship offers will be emailed
  • Step 4 - May 1 is the last day e-signed acceptance letters/scholarship offers may be submitted

*Auditions and scholarship offers are ongoing, though priority is given to those who audition earliest.


4. Take the Music Theory Diagnostic.

Incoming students will take a music theory diagnostic at a summer SOAR orientation. Click here for preparation information.


UTM Music requires students who do not pass the Music Theory Diagnostic to take a Fundamentals in Theory course. This course is offered online during the Summer or in person during the Fall. There is no music scholarship available to take the Summer online section, and federal loans can only be taken out if you are enrolled in at least 6 credit hours. If you opt to take this course online prior to your first semester, you will need to fill out the FAFSA for the year prior to your incoming fall semester at least 2 weeks before the class begins. Please contact Financial Aid for additional questions about funding for this course at 731-881-7040.
