Submit a recorded audition and supporting documents
The Conservatorium is committed to the health and safety of our applicants and staff. For this reason, all auditions for the Trimester 1 2021 intake will require applicants to submit a recorded audition as the first of a two-phase process.
After you have submitted your QTAC application and paid for your audition via GriffithPAY, the next step is to prepare your recorded audition and check if your specialisation/s have any other specific requirements, such as a folio, music, or performance CV.
Recorded audition and supporting documents due dates:
- 251722 Bachelor of Music—due by 4 September 2020
- 251782 Bachelor of Acting—due by 31 August 2020
- 251772 Bachelor of Musical Theatre—due by 31 August 2020.
To prepare your recorded audition and supporting documentation, review the audition requirements relevant to the program and specialisations you are applying for. You may also like to check out the audition video tips and audition checklist at the bottom of this page for assistance with preparing your submission.
Once your recorded audition is ready along with the supporting documentation that is required, you are ready to submit these via the registration form below. The preferred form of video submission is YouTube and the preferred form of supporting document submission is Dropbox.
How to submit your recorded audition
You will need the following information when registering:
- your QTAC application number (this is a nine-digit number)
- your GriffithPAY receipt number
- the link to your recorded video audition/s on YouTube
- the link to your folio uploaded to Dropbox (if your chosen specialisation under the Bachelor of Music is Creative Music Technology or Composition)
- the link to your music CV uploaded to Dropbox (if applying for the Bachelor of Music—all specialisations)
- the link to your performance CV uploaded to Dropbox (if applying for Bachelor of Acting and/or Bachelor of Musical Theatre).
We understand that during the lockdown period applicants will not have had access to the tuition and ensembles that they would have had in other conditions, and these circumstances have been taken into consideration.
We have therefore put in place an Audition process to ensure the health and safety of all our applicants and staff, and a 2-phase process to ensure that no applicant will be disadvantaged because of this.
Phase 1 requires you to submit an audition video and CV. You will be considered based on the quality of your performance: your skills, ability and technique – not the quality of the recording, which can be done using your phone, or tablet. From this we will determine whether you move to an audition and interview in Phase 2, or interview only.
These changes have been put in place to ensure no applicant is disadvantaged.
Phase 2 auditions will be held from 28 September–3 October 2020, with the various specialisations held on specific days.
