<p>While UC Berkeley does not have a music performance major, they do have private piano teachers. However, in order to study with these piano teachers at no extra cost, one has to do an audition. </p>
<p>The requirements are as follows: "Prepare a piece of your own choosing. For pianists, a piece like a Mozart Piano Sonata, a Bach Prelude and Fugue, or a Chopin Prelude is recommended. You will also be asked to sight read."</p>
<p>I also emailed an undergraduate advisor and she said to, "prepare a solo piece (possibly with contrasting excerpts) and be prepared for sight-reading"</p>
<p>Obviously, these requirements aren't as demanding as real music school auditions, but I still want to do well. I have a list of possible pieces, but dont know which would be a good choice. </p>
<p>I have narrowed it down to:</p>
<p>-Beethoven's Sonata No. 5 1st mvmt.
-Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Sonata (No. 15) - 1st or 3rd. mvt.
-Schubert Sonata in A minor - op. 42, D. 84</p>
<p>I am open to other pieces that are of equal difficulty if you have any others in mind. </p>
<p>Thanks for your time!!</p>
