Every year, applicants tell us that they enjoy auditioning at Trinity Laban.

Our audition procedure is designed to enable us to find out about you - not just how good a performer or composer you are, but what sort of a person you are, and to assess whether you have the potential to be the sort of musician who will benefit from the approach that we have. We aim to provide a positive and friendly atmosphere, and we want you to enjoy yourself.

Audition information

You will be notified of your audition information via the email account you included on your UCAS Conservatoires application.  Please ensure that you check this account regularly as you will not receive any information from Trinity Laban through the mail.

Please check the filtering services on your email account and ensure that messages with the ending do not go to your junk mail folder, as you may otherwise miss vital information.

You will normally receive detailed information about the audition process along with your appointment details, no later than two weeks prior to your audition date.

Please note, it may not always be possible to give applicants for this session two weeks' notice of their audition date. Applicants should also note that the audition fee is non-refundable.

The Faculty of Music does not offer deferred entry.

Classical and Jazz Instruments/Voice

  • Applicants will be required to perform on their principal study instrument/voice or present their composition portfolio.
  • Applicants may be given a short sight-reading and/or improvisation test.
  • You will be contacted prior to your audition asking you to confirm whether you would like to bring your own accompanist or use one we provide.

We can waive our audition fee for students from low income backgrounds and those who meet the specific criteria. Please contact with any queries. 

We are also offering free bassoon auditions for applicants who wish to apply. Applicants will only be required to pay the UCAS Conservatoire fee. Please contact for guidance and information. 

Special requirements

If you have a disability or learning difficulty and require special provision on the day of your audition, please contact Admissions or the Disability Officer.
