Recommendation Forms

Although letters of recommendation are not required as part of the music audition/admissions process, they are encouraged. They are helpful to the faculty hearing the audition. We will accept one or two letters, using these forms:

Please arrange to have these forms either

  • emailed to, or

  • mailed to the Office of Music Admissions, The Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam, 44 Pierrepont Ave., Potsdam, NY 13676-2294

Please arrange for these to arrive at least a week or two prior to your audition.


There are opportunities for students and their parents to meet with faculty, administrators,college admissions personnel and current Crane students as part of on-campus auditions. The complete on-campus audition day schedule is available by clicking the link below.
