Be recognized for your talent and potential — join a remarkable community of musicians.
Beloit’s music department is a welcoming community that includes performers, composers, listeners, engineers, teachers, and historians — and is open to music majors, music minors, and students studying across the curriculum who have a passion for music. Performances, courses, ensembles, lessons, and myriad opportunities for collaboration are open to all.
The Sau-Wing Lam and Marjorie Brown Leff Music Scholarships are awarded each year to admitted students based on their talent and potential to contribute to the Beloit College music department.

A completed electronic audition consisting of video or audio recordings of two contrasting musical pieces. You will be prompted to upload these files while completing the Music Scholarships application.
Please audition in your area of strongest expertise. Although a specific difficulty level is not required, you should choose two pieces that you feel best showcase your skills and abilities.
We encourage all students to perform, if possible and appropriate, with an accompaniment (e.g. piano, guitar, vocal track, etc.) so that we may see how you both listen and collaborate with others.
Once on campus, your participation in an ensemble or lessons does not need to be in the same area as your audition.
The music department provide flexibility for students—whether majors, minors, or those taking a single course—to develop their passions in performance, composition, or topics in music history and culture.
