We have had to cancel all face-to-face entrance auditions to Brock Music because of the COVID 19 pandemic. However, we would still very much like to hear you perform, and, to this end, we are switching over to a remote audition process. There will be two components to this:

  1. A recorded audition, which you can submit via Youtube, Vimeo, Dropbox or another file sharing site of your choice. The extended deadline to do this is May 11 by 11:59 p.m.
  2. An abbreviated on-line theory placement test, which we will arrange with you once part 1 is complete. This will take 45 minutes at a mutually convenient time.

Recorded Audition.

  • Please prepare video recordings of TWO pieces. These should be two contrasting “classical” pieces.
  • These can be recorded on a phone, a camera, a tablet, a laptop or any other means. Each piece should be a single run-through, without editing and without pauses.
  • Position the phone/camera etc so that your face and the instrument can be seen throughout the video.
  • An accompanist is not necessary, but possible if you have one available.
  • The pieces you upload should be designated solo pieces for your instrument or voice; please avoid band, orchestra or choir parts.
  • E-mail Music@brocku.ca to let us know when you have uploaded the video, and provide a link to it.
  • If a legal copy of your music is available, please attach it in PDF format to that e-mail.
  • If no legal copy is available, include composer and title information for both pieces in your e-mail.

Theory Placement Test

  • If you have already passed RCM Level 7 theory or higher, please send a scan of your grading sheet or your certificate and you can be exempt from having to write the theory test. Attach this material to your e-mail when submitting the video, so that we know that you do not need to write this test.
  • If you need to write the theory test, let us know in your e-mail and we will arrange a time to do this on-line upon successful completion of the video audition.

Other supporting material

Letters from referees are no longer required, but I would encourage you to still have your two referees send in their letters, if possible.

Accept your offer

You’ve received your offer, you’ve done your happy dance, and you’re already drawing badgers all over your notes. Before you start packing your bags and making your way to Niagara, you’ll need to formally accept your offer to Brock University.

If you applied to Brock through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), that is also where you will accept your offer.

If you did not apply though OUAC, you will need to accept your offer through your my.brocku.ca student portal.

Learn how to accept your offer

An ‘alternate offer’ means that we’re unable to offer you admission to your first-choice program at this point in time, but we still want you to become a Brock Badger! In order to make this happen, we’ve provided you with an alternate offer to a related program.

If you’re still completing courses this semester, don’t worry — we will automatically reconsider you for your first-choice program once your school sends us your mid-term grades (typically in early May). Continue to work hard!

After you’ve accepted your offer, there are a a few more steps before you can start your classes in the fall. You’ll need to register for your courses (mid-June), register for our transition programs (July and August), and finally, pay your tuition and fees (September).

Be sure to check back frequently for more information on these deadlines.
