Orchestra Auditions

Welcome to all our new members!

Orchestra Auditions begin the first week of school to place all students on the appropriate parts. This is a “get to know you” audition so we can find out what level you are playing at right at this time…Do not get too stressed out over this audition, we know you will grow tremendously over the year and will have the opportunity to improve you placement over the course of the year.

Audition Materials:

Bring a prepared piece of music to play.  This piece should be music you can play well to show us your best playing and level that you are at. The music can be a piece you are working on with your private teacher if you study. Otherwise, bring a piece you can play through that best represents your ability.

Students should be able to also demonstrate:

G-Major scale three octaves, up and down.

D-Major scale in spiccato style

C-Chromatic Scale

Auditions begin the second day of regular orchestra class.
