Important Instructions: Audition Videos
You can audition as a singer, rapper, or instrumentalist. As an instrumentalist, you can audition on any instrument, including turntables. The video must feature you performing “live,” that is, you must be clearly seen and heard actually singing and/or playing an instrument for the entire video (not lip-syncing, as in a music video). The pieces can be cover songs or original songs of any length. You should choose songs that you’re comfortable playing/singing and that best showcase your musical ability. Given the focus of the MIAP program, songs aligned with popular music (such as blues, rock, country, soul, hip-hop, r&b, etc.), world music (non-Western music), and/or Indigenous music are preferred. Pre-recorded accompaniment tracks can be used, but your playing/singing must be clearly heard above any pre-recorded accompaniment.
You must choose ONE primary instrument (such as “voice” or “guitar”), and both of your audition videos should feature you on your primary instrument. If your primary instrument is voice, you can accompany yourself on guitar, piano, or other instrument if you like, but only your voice will be evaluated.
Turn your musical passion into a career with this program, which combines performance, creative, contextual, business and technology courses to help you become a versatile, culturally aware musician and singer with the technological and business savvy necessary to work in music-related fields.
As you work your way through the program, professional musicians will mentor you during private lessons and ensemble rehearsals, and you’ll have the opportunity to perform and record. During the program’s third year, you’ll either join the music creation and business stream or the music creation and technology stream. Then, a six-week field placement will further enhance your hands-on and specialized experience.
During the final semester of the Music Industry Arts and Performance (MIAP) program, students will acquire a six-week field placement after eight weeks of coursework. This field placement will allow students to apply what they have learned in the MIAP program in a real-life work setting. This will enable students to gain valuable work experience, network with possible future employers and collaborators, and refine their career goals.
