  1. Acually I got an interview invitation from one university yesterday (MM-Composition), but I had no idea how to prepare for the interviews over about month and a half remaining, believing that musical composition should be such a broad area and there must be lots of things to cover...At this time I'm going to prepare for questions on 1) My favorite composers and their representative works and musical styles 2) Principles of orchestration 3) Previously taken coursework about musical composition and theory 4) Why and how I began learning composition 5) Previously attended composition recitals, masterclasses, guest lectures, etc 6) How I have developed my musical language 7) Score identification 8) Music theory (mostly tonal harmony) 9) Ear training (mostly tonal harmony and melody) 10) Plans during the program and after graduation 11) Particular reasons for applying that university Do you think that preparing for the above should be enough? If not, could you recommend anything else to prepare you believe to be important but not listed above? Also, could you let me know which university is heavily testing on which part based on your previous interview experiences? Additionally, could you let me know what universities have specific exams on music history or theory as parts of their auditions? For those without such exams, do they mostly ask some questions on music theory during the interviews? THX-Edward
