Auditions for Bulldog Beat, Color Guard, Percussion, and for Bulldog Marching Band Scholarships 

The Bulldog Beat and Department of Music host audition day(s) each spring, typically in February and March. Prospective members for the Bulldog Beat, which is our top scholarship group at Fresno State, perform a live audition based on a prepared packet of music found on our web site. The Department of Music auditions are for music majors, or minors, who seek admission into their respective instrument's studio and assesses students for merit-based scholarships. Students auditioning for Bulldog Beat can be from any major on campus and do not have to be a music major to receive a Beat scholarship.

Percussion and Color Guard Auditions are held each spring and serve as placement in the Bulldog Marching Band percussion section and color guard. The auditions allow the staff to evaluate the incoming talent for placement and gives the staff an opportunity to give feedback, while setting the group up for the Fall.
