International Auditions

The Office of Admission is pleased to announce that The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will hold auditions for fall 2015 admission in several other countries. This page will be updated as the date and exact location for each international audition are confirmed. All applicants are welcome to audition at one of our overseas venues as an alternative to traveling to New York City or submitting an audition recording. International auditions, on-campus auditions, and recorded auditions follow the same audition requirements and are evaluated in the same way by the admission committee.

Procedure for Scheduling an International Audition

Follow the normal admission process: First, submit the online application, selecting Regional Audition as your preferred audition method. Once you receive confirmation that your online application has been received, we will work with you to select your audition day and time. We will begin scheduling auditions in December 2014. Please read the application instructions carefully to understand the entire admission process. Note that all required application documents must be received by the Office of Admission by the posted deadlines.
