Default Re: "easy" audition pieces

Obviously, what is easy will depend on how advanced you are now.

Universities make decisions about entrance into their program based on the potential of the student and the number of positions available. If two players of equal potential audition, but only one can be accepted, they will first offer admission to the more advanced player. As a general rule though, most universities expect a student to be auditioning at what is generally called a grade VIII conservatory level.

A good example piece which is not technically difficult, but is musically challenging is Robert Schumman's Fantasy Piece No. 1.
