Audition Info

 

Students seeking acceptance into the Hartt Trumpet Studio should follow these steps:


Begin the application process for the University of Hartford


Contact Professor Snedecor directly if you are unable to attend any of the scheduled audition dates and set up a private audition or would like to audition on one of the scheduled audition dates.  Many students prefer to visit Hartt during school hours.  You may be allowed to sit in on a rehearsal or attend a studio class if requested


Consider taking a lesson with Prof. Snedecor before your scheduled audition - this will give you the opportunity to ask more specific questions and get a feel of how he teaches.

One complete étude or movement of a standard solo work that shows Lyrical playing.
